THE BRONX — A man who recycled golf balls was found stabbed to death in Van Cortlandt Park Thursday night, police said.
The 62-year-old victim was discovered by a jogger near the golf course on the west side of the park about 7:30 p.m., cops said. He was shirtless and had 10 stab wounds to his left forearm, left shoulder and chest, sources said.
The man, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The jogger ran onto the golf course and borrowed a cell phone from a player to call police, sources said.
A worker at the golf course recognized the victim as a man who collected golf balls hit over the course's fence, cleaned them up and resold them, sources said.
"He did that with another individual, who we're attempting to locate at this time," Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said at an unrelated press conference.
That man is not considered a suspect at this time, sources said.
