Police say a badly decomposing body was found by a man walking his dog in Inwood Hill Park on Monday morning.
DNAinfo reports the body has not been identified but is described to be of a man between 50 to 60-years-old.
Police say a tent was found nearby and they believe the man had been camping in the park. No foul play is suspected at this time.
In 2004, Julliard student Sarah Fox was found strangled in the same park.
