Correction (10:00 p.m.): The original information turned out to be incorrect. Even though we were sent multiple reports about a body on Van Sicklen Street, it turned out it was Van Siclen Avenue in Cypress Hills. Our apologies on the error, and in the future we will seek out a higher level source for confirmation to avoid such confusion.

Bensonhurst Bean has received a tip that a dead body has been found on Van Sicklen Street in Gravesend, and police believe the circumstances may have been suspicious.

Police have called a level 1 mobilization, bringing special units from the borough task force to investigate after they found a body on Van Sicklen Street between Avenue S and Avenue T.

A crime scene is being established.

This is a breaking news story and may contain inaccuracies. We will update it as more information becomes available. If anyone has more information or additional photos, please send them to nberke (at) bensonhurstbean (dot) com.

  1. You should really check your resources before you put such serious news into print. My mother lives on that block and I was very worried! Shame on you Ned Burke! What kind of journalist are you anyhow?
