From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: DOA on Manhattan Avenue?

I arrived home from this evening’s Public Safety Committee meeting (which, it should be noted handles criminal matters) to find this item (which hails from NYScanner) in my inbox. I have reached out to the head of the 94th Precinct, Deputy Inspector Hurson, in the hope he can shed some light on what happened. It goes without saying that if/when I learn anything, I will post an update here.

UPDATE, March 2, 10:55 a.m.: I have received a clarification from D.I. Hurson! He writes:

I don’t see anything for Greenpoint and Manhattan ave, we did have a DOA last night inside of 1109 Manhattan Ave but we don’t believe it to be suspicious.

For those of you who are not in the know 1109 Manhattan Avenue is the Greenpoint Hotel (hence perhaps a transposition was made?). This is one of our community’s, um, notorious establishments.

I have contacted the head of the 94th Precinct, Deputy Inspector Hurson, in the hope he can verify this and perhaps tender a few details. In the meantime, if anyone has more information please shoot me an email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Your identity will remain anonymous if your so desire. Thanks— and YIKES!

UPDATE, 10:53 a.m.: I have received confirmation from D.I.Hurson. He writes:

You have great intel, yes dead body was found floating in the river. Appears to be a man we are waiting for the Medical Examiner to come and make a determination of the cause of death
