Police found a dead man they suspect overdosed on a Brighton Beach sidewalk on Feb. 19.
Officials recovered the body on the corner of E. 11 Street and Banner Avenue around 9:30 am after someone called 911, police said.
Emergency responders pronounced the 29-year-old man dead at the scene, cops said. He showed no signs of trauma, and officials suspect died of a drug overdose, law enforcement sources said.
The man’s body was in front of a derelict house that squatters frequent, neighbors said. It is a known drug den, police said.
Locals lodged 14 complaints against the Banner Avenue building between March 2011 and November 2015 — including one for a homeless encampment, according to city reports.
The medical examiner will give the official cause of death, and police will release the victim’s name after they notify his family, officials said.
