The burned body believed to be of abducted Williamsburg businessman Menachem Stark, was found Saturday morning in a Great Neck dumpster in Nassau Country, law enforcement confirmed to media.
According to the report, a gas station employee had discovered the body around 4 p.m., Friday and alerted Nassau County Police.
“In the morning, it was smoking,” Fernando Cerff said of finding a small plume of smoke rising at around 7 a.m. Friday from his Dumpster at his Getty Station. Cerff assumed that a lit cigarette had been tossed inside. He shoveled some snow on top and left it, he said. “We threw snow on it, and it stopped,” he said.
But by mid-afternoon, he noticed the stench of charred flesh — and called the police. “The smell,” he said. “It made me sick.”
“The community is shocked beyond words, and also grateful for the tireless work by the NYPD,” Rabbi Abe Friedman, a community leader and NYPD liaison, told the NY Post.
