A crime scene in Babylon, New York. Newsday (April 6, 2018) reported the discovery of decomposed human remains along North Railroad Avenue between Ralph Avenue and Livingston Avenue in Babylon, New York. Newsday provided only one photo with the report so we decided to give more coverage to this crime scene. The body was discovered along this quiet, suburban street which is somewhat isolated. To the south of the Long Island Railroad tracks is Hoffman (Railroad) Avenue, and a few blocks to the north is Park Avenue. Both of those are thru streets and are well traveled. North Railroad Avenue by contrast is mostly only frequented by the residents who live there.
The lead photo, Human Remains Discovered, shows the section of North Railroad Avenue between Ralph and Livingston Avenues where the body was discovered. Newsday reports a long standing investigation into this crime, however positive identification of the victim has not been made as of this date. Potential danger to the residents of North Railroad Avenue is not expected. It may be that the body of the victim was simply dumped at this location and that the homicide was committed elsewhere.
