A 50-year-old woman was found dead inside a Bayside park comfort station last Friday, authorities said.

At 4 p.m. Jan. 8, a witness entered the field house-turned-bathroom in Crocheron Park to find Kyung Park sitting on the ground with her back propped up against a shipping container and a bag over her head.

EMS pronounced the unresponsive Park dead on arrival.

Park, who lived just a few blocks away, had been reported missing to police earlier that morning.

Friday morning posts on the Citizens App regarding a search for a missing woman described her “as a 50-year-old Asian woman with brown hair, 5’3”, 120 lbs, last seen wearing a gray jacket, gray sweatpants, and black sneakers.”

A subsequent post on the app included a video of police responding to the 214-41 34 Ave. location shortly past 4:30 p.m.

It is not yet clear how Park died. The investigation is ongoing and the medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
