Police search for clues after body found in playground next to Parkchester school

Police are searching for clues after the body of an unidentified man was discovered in a playground next to an elementary school in Parkchester Wednesday.

According to authorities, the man believed to be in his 20s, died of stab wounds to the abdomen. Police say it was probably the result of a fight or a robbery and say there is no indication the incident was drug or gang related.

The playground connects P.S. 106 and St. Raymond?s High School and is heavily trafficked. Parents say they are happy the students were not in school because of spring break. Some parents believe more lights are needed in the area.
