A 27-year-old Roosevelt man has been identified as the man whose dead body was found on the side of Meadowbrook State Parkway in Freeport last week.

New York State police are investigating the murder of Kelvin Rolando Cruz Martinez, who was discovered in a wooded area west of the parkway and north of Sunrise Highway on May 8.

A day laborer had been found dead in the same woods last year. Nassau County police had found a 46-year-old Hempstead man dead in a nearby Roosevelt preserve two months ago.

Police said there a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest in Martinez’ case.
