A medical examiner has identified the body found in a Lexus SUV in Forest Park as that of Yuriy Grinchuk, 40, to whom the vehicle was registered.
According to Megan Cuccia, a spokesperson for the ME, “The case is pending. We need to do further investigation in order to determine the cause of death.”
The body was discovered by a sanitation worker on Monday, May 5 when he reportedly noticed a foot sticking out of a transparent plastic bag inside the car parked on Park Lane South.
Grinchuk, of Brooklyn, was reportedly arrested last month for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, Lyubov Tulaykina.
