It has been a busy week for police in Queens.

Police are looking for three suspects who robbed 19 people in Corona and Elmhurst from December to February. The suspects are described as Hispanic males between the ages of 20- and 30-years-old.

The NYPD found human remains at Flushing’s Kissena Park on Feb. 8. According to police, the remains have probably been there for months.

After a six-month investigation employing over 250 leads from the public, 1,700 investigative reports and DNA testing, detectives have reportedly found Howard Beach Karina Vetrano’s killer. Chanel Lewis, the 20-year-old East Brooklyn resident accused of brutally raping and murdering Howard Beach’s Karina Vetrano last August, is being held without bail on second-degree murder charges.

In lighter news, a new French restaurant in Woodside has become a favorite for Queens residents and a supermarket in Ridgewood is expanding to add an outdoor cafe and sushi and hibachi offerings.
