The call came in to the New York police on Monday: A woman who had lived in Queens in the 1970s had something she needed to get off her chest. As a child, she had witnessed a body being buried in her backyard. It had been decades, but she was sure she knew exactly where it was.

Twenty-four hours later, forensic anthropologists unearthed decaying human bones from the very spot the woman described, behind the Richmond Hill townhouse where she had grown up. For more than 40 years, the remains had rested there undisturbed, buried in a makeshift grave.

The sensational — if grim — discovery is one of the rare moments when the reality of police work all but trumps fictionalized TV true crime tales. The excavation has captivated conspiracy theorists and sent the department into a scramble to try to crack the case, which is being treated as a homicide.

But as with any good mystery, there are myriad unanswered questions. Who was the victim? When did that person die? And, most important, how did that body wind up in pieces in a backyard, all but forgotten since the 1970s?

John Guido has lived for more than 40 years behind the two-story home at 87-72 115th Street where the remains were found. He said the home had been a rental property that for decades had housed an endless stream of tenants. In the 1970s, he said, it attracted “really bad guys.”

Jupiter and Saturn revealing startling new clues as to how they tick

Jupiter and Saturn revealing startling new clues as to how they tick Recent data transmitted by spacecraft studying Jupiter and Saturn are challenging researchers’ preconceived notions as to how these planets are formed. The gravity and magnetic information relayed from the Juno and Cassini probes of the fifth and sixth planets of the solar system is “confounding” at least one researcher, reported Science Daily. “Although there are puzzles yet to be explained, this is already clarifying some of our ideas about how planets form, how they make magnetic fields and how the winds blow,” said Caltech astronomer David Stevenson.

After the boy’s body was found in a ditch, a coroner determined the cause of death was strangulation, but also found that the young boy had eaten KFC before his death. Investigators also received a tip claiming the women were buried under the foundations of a local hospital parking lot.

The remains, which still held a significant amount of body tissue, were taken to the city’s medical examiner. But given their condition, it is expected to take extensive examination to determine the person’s age at the time of death, sex and cause of death, an official said.

The home was a blight on the otherwise tight-knit, safe block through the 1980s, said Bill Corsa, who has lived there since 1980.

“I wasn’t happy about it,” he said. “I can’t imagine how somebody buried a body and nobody noticed.”

The home’s backyard was a patchwork of dirt and holes on Wednesday as the police continued to investigate for a second day. Some holes appeared to be several feet deep.

In the real-crime lexicon, cold cases are their own storied class. Tales of decaying bodies and belated justice can captivate crime junkies.

“The fuller the body, the better they’re going to be able to determine age and sex and potential ethnicity,” said Dr. Robert Kunkle, a forensic psychologist who is a consultant for cold-case investigations.

As 115th Street in Queens was turned into a real-life version of a “C.S.I.” set, neighbors said they found the entire experience unsettling.
