Detectives are investigating the death of a 59-year-old Pomonok Houses resident who was found brutally stabbed in his apartment on Tuesday night.
Officers from the 107th Precinct responded to a 911 call at 10:13 p.m. on Sept. 25 regarding an stabbed male inside an apartment building within the public housing complex at 67-33 Kissena Blvd., off Melbourne Avenue.
Upon arriving at the location, law enforcement sources said, the officers found Raul Tejada, 59, unconscious and unresponsive with multiple stab wounds about his body. Responding paramedics pronounced Tejada dead at the scene.
His body was transported to the Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy to determine whether the wounds were self-inflicted, or if Tejada had been murdered. At this point in the investigation, sources said, it’s unclear whether foul play was involved.
Police did recover from the location a knife believed to have been used during the incident.
No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
