man found in bag in Bronx housing project
The bodyof a 400 pound man was found stuffed in a duffel bag inside a Oakley Outlet n apartment in a Bronx housing project Saturday, sources told the Oakley Outlet Daily News.
Patrol officers responding to a different incident at the Justice Sonia Sotomayor Houses in Soundview caught a whiff of a foul odor coming from another apartment, the sources said.
The cops located a son of the resident, who was not immediately identified, to let them inside the sixth floor apartment on Bruckner Blvd., sources said.
The door opened to a gruesome scene: blood covered the kitchen floor, cleaning products were strewn about the room and a bloody hatchet was lying nearby, sources said.
Cops also spotted a large duffel bag, drenched in blood, in a kitchen closet, sources said.
“It’s soaked,” a police source said. “It’s a river of blood coming from the bag, at least 8 pints.”
Crime scene detectives and workers from the city’s medical examiner’s office were still working inside the apartment last night.
Although the identity of the body had not yet been determined, many residents were shocked that it could be their heavyset neighbor.
“He was a sweetheart,” said Sheila Jefferson. “He was really nice.”
One woman, who lives on the same floor, suspected the man was selling drugs out of the apartment and he recently warned her not to let her children play in the hallway.
“He was a nice person to everybody,” said Yaniris Laureano, 21. “He was really nice to my kids. He used to give them candy or toys.”
The rotund neighbor also was known for advising younger residents.
“He’d give me lectures about life lessons,” said Anthony Terc, 17. “He was a cool guy.”
A friend said she recently ran into the man, who claimed he was trying to exercise and eat healthier to lose weight.
Sources said investigators believe the decomposing body had been in the apartment for days before the grisly find.
The putrid odor was so strong that it lingered on the uniforms of the responding officers, sources said.
“It was a bad smell and it’s still there,” said Laureano. “It smells like a dead rat. It’s bad.”Editor’s Picks Lawrence: Pierce’s message scores with Brooklyn Paul Pierce doesn’t do math like the rest of us.
