Police are investigating the suspicious deaths of two men today whose bodies were found by Parks Department employees in separate incidents in different Queens parks.

The first body was discovered  lying face down in Forest Park about 4:30 a.m. this morning in the bandshell parking lot in tree debris sources said. The black male was identified as Thomas Dudley 21 of Brooklyn and had his throat slit according to the New York Times.  

Detectives were working on the premise that the man had been a drug dealer and had been abducted at some point before being murdered and dumped in the lot, according to the paper.

The second body,  a black male, was discovered after 8:00a.m in sand dunes in Rockaway Beach according to sources.  He had gunshot wounds to the head and was stuffed in a bag.

Parks and Department of Labor workers cleaning up debris made the gruesome discovery near B.13th street. 

"They were yelling and screaming," said a parks worker at the scene who added that workers were traumatized by finding the body.

The body was found yards away from where the Mayor landed in a helicopter on a recent tour of Far Rockaway according to a city source.

Forest Park was the scene of a gruesome discovery on May 12th when an unidentified man was found burnt on top of a pile of burning garbage. The victim had some mental issues and was supposedly exposing himself to women according to a parks source.
