New York — Detectives are investigating how a Harlem teen who dreamed of becoming a music teacher wound up dead in a snowbank outside a building in the Abraham Lincoln Houses, police said.
A passerby spotted the snow-covered body of Gregory Willis Jr., 17, on Sunday morning – four days after his family reported him missing to police, cops said.
Detectives don’t know whether Willis jumped, fell or was thrown from the roof of a building close to his family’s home in the same Harlem development, police said.
“We are distraught. We are devastated. We are shocked,” his aunt, Shante Price, 32, told the Daily News. “It’s just a mystery right now. What happened?”
