This is a real life Halloween horror story.
Woman’s Body Found In Street Near Train Station Where Man Committed Suicide
Police found the beheaded body of a woman in her 60’s in a Farmingdale street just minutes before a man, suspected to be her son, stepped in front of a LIRR train nearby.
According to NY Daily News reports:
Police made the horrific discovery of the woman’s body in front of an apartment building on Secatogue Ave. in Farmingdale around 7:55 p.m., a Nassau County Police spokesman said.
The body of the female victim, wearing only a bra and pants, was lying on one side of the street and her head was on the other, said witness Jack Imperial, 41, of Briarwood, Queens, who was taking a taxi to a meeting when he came across the grisly scene.
“The body’s feet were at the curb, the shoulders were at the middle of the street. The head was across the street,” said Imperial. “I’ve seen some gruesome stuff in my years of living … but nothing like this. I didn’t expect to see something like this, especially not out here.”
“I thought it was Halloween hoax. There was no big splatter of blood. It looked staged,” Imperial said.
Just 20 minutes after finding the corpse, MTA police confirmed a man in his 30s, identified by law enforcement sources as possibly the woman’s son, stepped in front of a Ronkonkoma-bound Long Island Rail Road train near the Clinton St. crossing.
The woman’s head may have been kicked across the street after the murder, a police source said.
It was not immediately clear if the killing occurred outside or in the apartment building. The identities of the dead man and woman were not immediately released.
Nick Gordon, who said he lived across the hall from the woman, said she moved in a few months ago and had a small white dog.
He speculated that the murder occurred inside the building. “When I came out the door, I saw the blood on the tile. It was all over, as if someone could’ve been pulling a body. You could see the smears going down the stairs.”
This sounds horrifying. Would you be able to recover after seeing such a thing?
