Dead man’s burned body found outside NYC home, NYPD says



A dead man with burns on his body was discovered in a backyard in Brooklyn early Tuesday — as cops determined that an elderly woman was missing from the same home, police said. 

A neighbor found the unidentified 46-year-old man unconscious and unresponsive in the backyard of the home on Bedford Avenue near Avenue Y in Sheepshead Bay around 5:30 a.m., authorities said. 

He was pronounced dead at the scene. The NYPD’s Arson and Explosion Squad responded, police said. 

Cops also determined that a 77-year-old woman, who was not immediately identified, was missing from the home. 

Her relationship with the man, if any, was not immediately clear. 

No further information was immediately available.
