Severely decomposed body found in wooded area on NYC golf course

54

Parks Department workers who were clearing the brush in a wooded area of a Bronx golf course this week found a badly decomposed body — and a cellphone that may help cops figure out who the person was, police said Wednesday.

The two workers found the remains in a wooded area at the Mosholu Golf Course on Jerome Avenue around 10:25 a.m. Tuesday.

The identity of the corpse couldn’t be determined and neither could the gender or race, cops said.

The area is known to be a haven for drug users and the homeless and the person may have overdosed, according to police.

The person had no identification on them but a cellphone was found, cops said. Investigators are obtaining a subpoena to get the person’s phone records and determine their identity.

The medical examiner will attempt to identify the person and determine a cause of death.
