Man Found Dead Off Coney Island

A man was found dead in the waters off Coney Island early today, and cops say they are searching for a possible second victim.

It is unclear how the first man died or how his body ended up near MCU park off 19th Street, police said.  Two bags were found nearby containing personal items such as a cell phone, camera and a bottle of Jack Daniels.  

Police said the discovery of two bags was part of the decision to look for a second victim.

The victim, who was described as a male in his 30s, will be examined by the medical examiner, police said.
