Female human remains were found on Canarsie Pol Island.
Police discovered the body yesterday when members of the NYPD Harbor Patrol were alerted of possible human remains at the Canarsie Pol (Small Marsh Land) Island within the confines of the 69th Pct.
The Harbor Unit decided that it was too dangerous to attempt traveling to the Island because it was too dark, the fog made visibility poor and the waters became too choppy. The operation was postponed until 9:30 this morning.
The Medical Examiner shall determine the cause of death and the investigation is ongoing.
Police say no criminality is suspected at this time.
The island is part of the Gateway National Recreation Area.
