The NYPD is looking for a 31-year-old man who they say was caught wheeling a dead body around in Staten Island early Friday morning.
On May 20 at 7:10 a.m. police responded to a call of an individual wheeling a body on a metal cart in front of 42 Post Lane, according to authorities.
When police arrived they saw the man – later identified as Anthony Lopez -- who then took off running and left the body of an unconscious and unresponsive woman on the metal dolly, cops said.
Emergency personnel pronounced the women dead at the scene.
