According to NYPD sources, a 62-year-old man named Robert Kennedy was found dead in a garden area by the playground across from 1 Bowling Green in the Battery.
A passerby spotted the body at 7:15 AM Thursday. The man was fully clothed, lying face down, and had his belongings on him. The matter is not being treated as a homicide. The medical examiner is assessing the body.
(Editor’s note: We Inform. Only BPTV takes the effort to verify these types of matters. We first read about it on ThePatch.com, and they had the wrong age, reported the man “covered in feces”, called the location “Battery Park” when it is “The Battery”, etc.)
