The body of a man was found before dawn last Thursday in the parking lot adjacent to the Seuffert Bandshell in Forest Park.

Police responded to a 911 call of an unconscious person in the parking lot located on Forest Park Drive, a few hundred yards west of Woodhaven Boulevard between the bandshell and the Forest Park Carousel, at 4:30 am on Nov. 15.

The man, identified as Thomas Dudley, 21, of Brooklyn was found unresponsive with lacerations to both of his wrists and stab wounds to his body. EMS responded and declared him dead at the scene.

Police say they are investigating the death as a homicide. The Homicide Squad was called to the scene.

Dudley’s body was found not far from where another man was found dead back in May.

In that incident, the victim, 48-year-old Zograb Avetisyam, was found burned after a fire was spotted in the park near Park Lane South and 86th Street.

Police say he died in the fire, but did not classify his death as a homicide.
