WHITE PLAINS, NY -- Westchester County Police today released a sketch of the man who was found dead along the Bronx River Parkway in Yonkers earlier this month.
“We are hoping that a member of the public will recognize this individual and help us to identify him,” Public Safety Commissioner George N. Longworth said. “I urge anyone with information about this person to contact us.”
The death is being investigated by detectives from the General Investigations Unit. They can be reached at 914-864-7700 or 1-877-220-3560. All calls are confidential.
In addition, the county police also accept information at [email protected].
The deceased is a male Hispanic in his 50s, 5 feet 6 inches tall and about 180 pounds. His body was observed by a passing motorist about 4:45 a.m. on April 2 alongside the southbound Bronx River Parkway, a short distance south of the Scarsdale Road exit.
Detectives believe the man died elsewhere and his body was left alongside the road. The cause of death is pending as detectives await the results of toxicology tests.
The sketch was prepared by an NYPD artist from photos provided by the county police. Longworth thanked the NYPD for its assistance.
