Man Who Killed Himself In His Car Was Buried Under Snow For A Week

Last week's storm buried thousands of cars in more than a foot of snow. New Yorkers pass by dozens every day without thinking twice about them.

But a man who apparently shot himself dead in Queens last week was discovered in his snow-covered car nearly a week later.

From the Daily News:

The victim, believed to be in his 20s, was discovered about 12:30 a.m., slumped over in the driver's seat of a car near 162nd St. and Laburnum Ave. in Flushing.

Police said he killed himself in the vehicle with a shotgun and may have been dead since last Wednesday.

"I never thought anything of the car being there for a few days," said a nearby resident, who asked his name not be published. "The car behind it has been buried under snow for three weeks now. People leave their cars buried around here. It didn't make me look twice."
