A man was found dead in the basement of a South Ozone Park home Tuesday morning, authorities said.
Police responded at about 4:48 a.m. to a 911 call of calls for help inside the home, at 120-46 131st St.
After entering the house, they found an unidentified man inside the basement. He had suffered trauma to the head and multiple stab wounds about the body, according to police.
Later in the day the area was quiet, although police had cordoned off the street with police tape on both ends of the block.
Officers at the scene said the case was still being investigated.
