    Police have released new video of a suspect in the kidnapping of a 39-year-old Brooklyn businessman whose body was found the next day in a dumpster on Long Island.

    Menachem Stark's body was found somewhat burned, according to police, in a dumpster at a Great Neck Getty gas station on Cuttermill Road on Jan. 3.

    According to officials, two suspects approached Stark while he was leaving his realty office on Rutledge Street in Williamsburg at around 11:30 p.m. Thursday.

    The suspects forced Stark into a light colored 2006-2007 Dodge Caravan, police said. Surveillance cameras caught images of the car. 

    The new video shows one suspect at the scene of the abduction before the kidnapping. The man in the video exits a white van and walks to the corner of Broadway and Rutledge at about 5 p.m., several hours before Stark was kidnapped. The suspect then walks back to the van.

    Police said Stark may have been carrying a large amount of cash.
