Golf Course Murder Mystery
By David Greene
BRONX, NEW YORK, JUNE 28- Police say the body of a male between 30 and 40-years of age was discovered by a jogger along a hiking trail in Van Cortlandt Park, on Thursday, June 27.
Police and paramedics were called to the park, just beyond the property line of the golf course, a short distance from where Mosholu Parkway intersects with the Henry Hudson Parkway, at just before 7:30 p.m.
Officials would only say the male victim was between 30 and 40 years of age and had been, "stabbed numerous times to the torso."
A man fishing in a lake a couple miles from where police were conducting their investigation, recalled, "First I saw three ambulances and then a ton of cop cars. I still don't know what's going on."
When told by a freelance video-journalist what had happened, he replied in disbelief, "Are you serious, someone murdered in here? The fisherman quickly packed up his gear and exited the desolate area.
An unusual location for a homicide, last nights was not the first at the Van Cortlandt Park Golf Course.
On October 20, 2006 Norwood resident Aldrick Jarvis, 31, murdered his wife Jessica, 30, and their 4-year old son Jacob in the parking lot, before turning the gun on himself.
