Officers from the 60th Precinct pulled the body of a 44-year-old man from a Brighton Beach building yesterday morning.

Cops were responding to a 911 call just after 11:00 a.m. of a foul odor coming from an apartment inside the building a 40 Brighton 1st Road.

When they arrived, they found a man unconscious and unresponsive. EMS came to the scene and pronounced him dead.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

It’s the second case in the past week in which a body was recovered from a Brighton Beach home. On Thursday, July 17, cops responded to a similar call on Brightwater Avenue where they found an unresponsive woman in her 40s, who was pronounced dead at the scene. The medical examiner had not determined a cause of death in that case as of yesterday.

  1. serial killer. Cereal is a breakfast meal as in Cheerios, Raison Bran, Captain Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, Frosted Flakes and Lucky Charms.

  2. Off topic, sort of….the dumping of garbage at East 16 St and Neck Rd is turning into a mountain of refuse and odor. Now, an abandoned toilet bowl has been added to the pile. I wonder who is taking the dump and why it cannot be stopped. ?
