No obvious indicators pointing to any initial determination of cause of death were present at the scene, said authorities, and would therefore have to wait for the results of an Autopsy to be performed by the Medical Examiner.

In addition to not knowing whether or not the man was a victim of foul play, Investigators are also working to determine how he ended up inside the manhole, as these covers can weigh up to 400lbs. The Investigation, and the mystery of this incident, continues.

In a bizarre incident, a 46yr old man handed a black backpack to another man while on the Eastern Parkway Esplanade at Utica Avenue on Sunday in Brooklyn, an area popular with residents who use it for biking, running or just relaxing on a bench in the shade, while hordes of strap hangers enter and exit the busy Utica Avenue hub for the numbers 3,4 and 5 trains.

It is not clear if any words were uttered, but the man who received the backpack looked in and saw a device that had a timer, duct tape and at least one red wire.

The man immediately flagged down some passing Cops who then called in the Bomb Squad. The heavily trafficked area was cordoned off for several hours, including train stoppage, while Officers from the Bomb Squad examined the package and searched for any possible additional devices.
