A 3-month-old baby has been found dead in the grass Tuesday morning outside Crocheron Park in Queens, police said.
The baby's gender was not immediately available, was found around 7:50 a.m. outside the Bayside park in a grassy area on 215th Street near 35th Avenue, just steps from P.S. 041 Crocheron.
Neighborhood resident Jackie Matuk said she noticed nothing amiss when she walked her dog through the area around 1 a.m. Tuesday.
“I didn’t see anything,” the 51-year-old mother of two children said. “It’s full of kids people walking their dogs, it’s a family park. It’s like everybody’s backyard. And to leave it there it doesn’t make sense.”
The infant, who was wearing only a diaper, was pronounced dead at the scene, cops said.
