    Can anyone explain the smashed up van that was just west of the body (maybe a few hundred feet) on the eastbound side of the highway or was it unrelated.

    Guys, Bay 14th is not “just outside Caeser’s Bay”. Come on. I know the story is just breaking, but that bit of info should be spotted as erroneous in a second.
    Bay 14th is almost in Dyker Heights, between 16th and 17th Avenues.

    I drove by this yesterday…I saw a guy with a video camera nearby, but I didn’t see a news van or anything.
