BAY SHORE - A body was found Friday in the parking lot of a Bay Shore apartment complex.

The corpse was discovered in a rear parking lot at The Birches apartments on South Clinton Road. It was wrapped in a pink blanket behind a dumpster.

Police have yet to indicate whether the body is that of a male or female, but say it has been taken to the medical examiner's office for an autopsy.

Raymond Castro, who lives at the complex, says the parking lot has been plagued by vandalism in the past. According to Castro, the complex's management company, NAI Long Island, has refused to install cameras on the property.
