Severed Human Head Found Floating in Bay

On Tuesday, a human head was discovered floating in Jamaica Bay, sparking an investigation by local authorities. The police are currently exploring the possibility of a connection between this grim find and a headless body found in the same waters a few weeks prior.

The unsettling discovery was made around 10:10 a.m. in the waters adjacent to Cross Bay Boulevard near 165th Avenue in Howard Beach. The NYPD’s Harbor Unit was the first to respond to the scene.

Authorities are now working to establish if the severed head belongs to Lukasz Mikolajewicz, a 46-year-old resident of Ozone Park. Mikolajewicz’s remains were first spotted by a couple fishing at the shore on April 12.

The headless body of Mikolajewicz was retrieved from the waters approximately 600 yards west from the beginning of the Cross Bay Bridge. The city Medical Examiner’s office has since ruled Mikolajewicz’s death a suicide, according to NYPD Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny.

Security footage obtained by the police showed a man dressed in black clothing walking alone onto the bridge before vanishing from sight. “The body that we recovered is headless but wearing the same clothes as the male that was walking on the bridge,” Kenny stated. He further noted that a green rope tied to a metal railing was found at the location where the man was last seen.

The Medical Examiner’s office is conducting DNA testing to determine if the severed head is linked to the body discovered on April 12. The results of these tests will be crucial in confirming or refuting the connection between the two gruesome discoveries.
