Packing Up: Fort Greene Gets a Body in a Box

October 15th, 2008 · 3 Comments

One of our GL readers hit us off with an alarming email this morning about one of those late night urban experiences that gets the juices flowing:

Hey…so i was walking home tonight and i had to be escorted by police because there was a corpse found in a cardboard box!!! Outside roughly the entrance of Fort Greene Park. Police quote: “we found some thing we should not have.”

Uh, here’s a bit more about what they found that they “should not have” as per Newsday. Well, at least it was boxed up nicely. Ugh.

    Cop quote is worthy of a movie trailer (voiceover with dark , scary crosscutting)!

    How curious that this got very little media coverage…As an area resident, it would be nice to know the who, what, when, where, why, and how of it all.
