The body of a 23-year-old hispanic male was found this afternoon with a blunt head injury in a Queens park, NYC Park Advocates has learned. 

The body was discovered by the abandoned railroad tracks in Forest Park not far from Victory feild  near Forest Park Drive & Woodhaven Blvd.  

Two park goers were walking around 3:30pm when they saw blood and followed the trail according to a law enforcement source. 

Police have set up a very active crime scene.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.  An ID was found but police have not yet released the name of the victim pending family notification.

A park user playing on Victory Field said they saw police activity in that area of the park on Tuesday night.

Edwin Gardiner Jr Last night after leaving the game after 8PM the firemen and an ambulance showed up looking around for a way to get down. But I was driving off already so I did not hang around but that was on Myrtle Ave. side of Victory Field.

Edwin Gardiner Jr Guess they did not realize the other bridge. So I guess that body was there for a day at least.
