BRONX NEWS: Cops trying to ID naked corpse found in shopping cart in Bronx


Cops are trying to identify the naked corpse found stuffed in a shopping cart outside a Bronx bodega, police said.


The victim, who is black or Hispanic and believed to be in his late teens or early 20s, was discovered by two men looking for bottles near the Bonoful Grocery on E. 182nd St. in University Heights about 8:45 p.m. Wednesday.


The naked body wasn’t dismembered, but jammed into a cardboard box and covered with a plastic garbage bag, police sources said.


An autopsy has been slated to determine the man’s identity and cause of death. The body did not appear to show any signs of trauma, sources said.

Human remains found inside shopping cart in the Bronx


The folding shopping cart had been outside the bodega near Jerome Ave. for most of the day, according to neighborhood bottle hunter Terry Frazier, who had approached the cart three times, but never inspected it because it didn’t look like it was carrying recyclables.


“You touch the top of it and if you hear ‘clink, clink, clink,’ you know it’s cans or bottles,” he said.


“I didn’t hear a clink. I touched it and felt something mushy, like wet carpeting. I left it alone. If I feel something and it’s not bottles, I’m not digging.


“You couldn’t really see what was inside,” he added. “I wasn’t about to go peering through to find out what it was.”


Frazier said he didn’t smell an odor coming from the covered contents of the cart.


“Oh my God!” he gasped upon learning of the rotting remains. “ That’s too much.”


Detectives and officials with the city medical examiner’s office were still investigating the scene early Thursday.


Fernando Sanchez, 30, a driver with a local taxi service, said he and about 20 neighborhood residents were hanging out on 182nd St. when they smelled the rotting corpse as police carted off the body around 10:30 p.m.


“When they moved the body, it smelled like death,” said Sanchez, who said he and other onlookers covered their noses as the body was removed. “It smelled like a meat shop where the meat is all rotten.”

Nike Presents the Customizable Gakou Flyknit

Image via: Nike

Image via: Nike

Over the years, various Flyknit prototypes have emerged from the work of Nike’s Special Projects design team. One of those prototypes seemed to stick — a sock-like shoe with suede on the heel and a Nike Free-inspired sole. It blended elements of the Nike Aqua Sock and Sock Racer but firmly stood on its own, eventually earning its own name: the Nike Gakou Flyknit. Something the designers couldn’t agree on, however, was the placement of the Swoosh, so they passed that decision on to the consumer, who can use the included rubber stencils to personalize the shoe.

White and black colorways of the Nike Gakou Flyknit will be available starting August 24 on Nike+, nike.com and at select retailers.

Release Date: 8/24/17 (Thursday)

Jordan Brand Supports Black Lives Matter Movement with Air Jordan 1

Earlier today Jordan Brand’s Frank Cooker debuted a new Air Jordan 1 both powerful in its message and harmonious in its timing.

His Air Jordan 1 “Black Lives Matter” could very well be a custom or sample never meant to see the light of day at retail. Yet whatever they are, the black-on-black colorway sends a powerful message of unity and inclusion in a time that we need it most.

This, however, isn’t the first time Jordan Brand has created with inspiration by African-American culture. Their annual Black History Month collection is an ode to equal rights and equality. Given a potential release of this BLM Air Jordan 1, Jordan Brand would easily be the most woke sportswear company in the biz.

No release details for this Air Jordan 1 are known. Stay tuned as we hope to have more information soon.

BRONX NEWS: Mom of Bronx man charged in choking death happy to see son again


The high school football player charged in the death of his mother’s abusive ex-boyfriend returned with her Wednesday to the scene of the crime — even though debate still raged over whether he did anything wrong.


A day earlier, supporters of Luis Moux, including his principal, stood in his corner as he was arraigned on manslaughter charges in Bronx Criminal Court, accused of choking to death Stanley Washington, 43, while coming to his mother’s defense early Monday in their Bronx apartment.


Moux, 18, who was released on bail, declined to comment as he left with his mother, apartment Tuesday with his mother, Lorena Sesma, 37, from their University Avenue apartment, which was still blocked off by crime scene tape.


“I’m happy to see my son again.”

Meanwhile, a makeshift memorial grew outside Washington’s Bronx home, where friends and relatives placed candles and flowers to spell his name.


A close friend said Washington’s name and reputation are being sullied in his death.


“The mother is painting Stan out to be an animal but that’s not the case,” the friend said. “He took care of that kid while his own father was locked up.”


Moux, a student at Progress High School for Professional Careers in Williamsburg, was in his bedroom at 4:30 a.m. Monday when Sesma began arguing with Washington in the hallway of her University Heights apartment.

Moux told cops he held Washington in a chokehold for two minutes until he “fell asleep,” sources said.


Washington had been arrested 33 times in the past for crimes ranging from assault to criminal possession of a weapon to menacing, criminal trespass and possession and sale of marijuana, sources said.
