SPRINGFIELD GARDENS – Police from the 105th Precinct were looking for a suspect wanted for homicide in the death of a man who opened a package that exploded.

Around 4 p.m. last Friday, a package was delivered to the home of 73-year-old George Wray around 229th Street between 147th and 148th Avenue, cops said.

When he opened the package, police said the parcel detonated, leaving Wray with severe burns on his legs, torso and head. EMS responders took Wray to Nassau University Medical Center where he finally succumbed to his injuries Tuesday.

Police have released a sketch of the suspect, who is described as a black male, 30 to 35 years old, 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds with dark colored eyes and a mustache.
