A man was found dead inside a garbage compactor chute in a Brooklyn (NYC) building this morning, authorities said.
The unidentified victim, believed to be in his 50s, was found dead at the bottom of the chute inside the “Medgar Evers” apartments on Gates Avenue near Lewis Avenue, in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, this morning shortly after 4 a.m., the NYPD said.
Preliminarily, investigators believe that the man entered the duct of his own free will, on the first floor. apparently later fell or somehow made its way to the part of the compactor, where the mechanism cut it off, the police said.
At the moment his death is not considered suspicious of a criminal act, pointed New York Post. It was not specified if the victim was a resident of that building.
In a similar case, a year ago the body of a woman was dumped in the trash in a quiet residential area in New Jersey who had been hired as an “escort” in a luxurious apartment on Wall St (NYC).
At the end of 2020 about newborn twins were found lifeless in a residential patio in the Bronx, next to the garbage. And in the summer of 2018 a woman was found dead inside a trash compactor in a luxury building cerca de Union Square, Manhattan.
