Police said Tuesday that a body found in a plastic bag along the Brooklyn shoreline this week was "obviously" the victim of a homicide — and that the man's feet were coated in cement.
NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said the man whose body was found in a bag near Sheepshead Bay at Oriental Boulevard in Manhattan Beach on Monday morning also had his hands bound behind his back.

"This individual was wrapped in plastic bags and his arms were tied behind him and his feet were submerged in concrete," Boyce said. "Obviously a homicide."
The man, whose identity hasn't been released, had several tattoos on his back, including the image of the Virgin Mary and a rose.
A student at nearby Kingsborough College discovered the body.
"It's a little crazy, especially in this area, for something like that to happen," said former student Daniel D'Angelo. "Especially near a college campus and everything. It's crazy."
No arrests have been made in the case.
Anyone with information about the killing should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
