Autopsy set for murdered homeless woman in Queens

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

There will be an autopsy Tuesday for a homeless woman found beaten to death at a playground in Queens.

The woman's body was found by a homeless man around 9:30 a.m. Monday.

Investigators say the victim, in her 50s, had been bludgeoned with a hard object. Neighbors said she spent most of her time on a bench in Police Officer Nicholas DeMutiis Playground. The playground is next to the 106th Precinct in Ozone Park.

A rock found near the scene was sent for testing.

Her possessions had been pulled from a grocery hand-cart and strewn around the area.
