Man believed dead six days found inside snowbound car

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The body of a man who apparently committed suicide last week was found inside a car buried in snow on Tuesday, police said.

The man appeared to have shot himself with a shotgun last Wednesday, January 26, according to the New York Police Department. He was discovered early on Tuesday.

The car was buried in deep snow on a street in the city’s Queens borough, police said. The city has been inundated in recent weeks with heavy snow, much of which has been plowed onto roadsides around parked cars.

Police have not identified the man, believed to be in his 20s.
