Suffolk County Police and numerous detectives were on the scene, aiding in the investigation. The Suffolk County crime lab truck pulled into Kirk Park a little before 11 a.m. and a county police command truck was seen heading east.

Clafin said police would be releasing information on the incident as soon as possible.
