A badly decomposed body that was found in Little Bay Park last month was identified as a 41-year-old Bayside resident, police said.

Caroline Maquinghin went missing in early July from her Bayside apartment, according to neighbors.

Maquinghin lived on Bell Boulevard, close to where her body was found in the Whitestone park on Aug. 5, according to police.

Officials have yet to determine the cause of death but they have ruled out any criminal act causing her death.

Cops said that the body was badly decomposed when it was found by a park employee in a wooded area near 14th Road and Utopia Parkway.

Neighbors of Maquinghin said that she used to jog often and in early July missing posters were put up in the building. The posters said Maquinghin had a history of depression.
