Woodside man found dead in bathtub
Detectives are investigating the killing of a Queens man who was found dead in his bathtub Wednesday with what police described as two puncture wounds to his head.
The 62-year-old Woodside man was discovered Wednesday morning after a friend became concerned when he could not reach him, police sources said. The friend went to the apartment building on 39th Dr. and then contacted the super, who let him inside the flat.
The man’s name has not been released by police.
Police officials described the case as a homicide investigation, but the city medical examiner will perform an autopsy to determine how he died. Police would only say the man had suffered traumatic injuries to his head, and it was not clear how long he had been dead before he was found.
