PROSPECT PARK — Police are investigating the death of a man found inside a tent in Prospect Park over the weekend, the NYPD said.
The 60-year-old unidentified man was found by police Sunday afternoon after passersby reported a smell to authorities, police said. Officers discovered the man lying face up inside a small tent in a wooded area near the park’s Center Drive.
Police said it’s likely the man was homeless, but the investigation is ongoing. The man has not yet been identified as of Monday.
It’s unclear for how long the man had been dead inside the tent. The NYPD said the medical examiner will determine a cause of death.
