Nassau County police Saturday confirmed that the man found dead in a Great Neck gas station’s dumpster was a 39-year-old Brooklyn man kidnapped after leaving work Thursday.
Menachem Stark’s body was discovered at the Getty gas station on 120 Cuttermill Road just before 4 p.m. Friday, police said.
Investigators have yet to reveal a cause of death.
Stark went missing around 11:30 p.m. Thursday after he was forced into a light colored Dodge Caravan on Rutledge Street in Williamsburg.
The van was caught on surveillance.
“They came out of the minivan and went straight for him,” the victim’s brother, Yitzy Stark, told the Daily News. “They grabbed him and he fought with them for about five minutes.”
Both the New York Post and NBC New York reported that Stark’s body was burned, citing unnamed sources. Nassau police have yet to confirm if that was the case.
Stark’s body was transported to the medical examiner’s office, police said.
The investigation is ongoing.
