The remains of a 46-year-old Hempstead man were found buried in a Long Island park last week, police say.
Authorities began searching for the remains in the Roosevelt Preserve after receiving information that a body was buried there at the end of Fredericks Avenue.
Nassau County homicide detectives unearthed the remains on Thursday. The medical examiner identified the body as Johnnie Floyd and ruled his death a homicide.
The investigation is ongoing.
