Parks Department workers who were clearing the brush in a wooded area of a Bronx golf course this week found a badly decomposed body — and a cell phone that may help cops figure out who the person is, police said Wednesday.
The two workers found the remains in a wooded area at the Mosholu Golf Course on Jerome Avenue around 10:25 a.m. Tuesday.
The identity of the corpse couldn’t be determined and neither could gender or race, cops said.
The area is known to be a haven for drug users and the homeless and the person may have overdosed, according to police.
The person had no identification on them but a cell phone was found, cops said. Investigators are obtaining a subpoena to get the person’s phone records and determine their identity.
The Medical Examiner will attempt to identify the person and determine a cause of death.
