Man Found Dead

BROOKLYN — Police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found Sunday morning on a Brooklyn rooftop.

The man, Phillip K. Ames, was found dead on the roof of an active warehouse on 86th Street, according to the King's County Medical Examiner's office. Ames' condition has not been released to the public, but warehouse staff claim that his body was in an advanced state of mummification, matching reports of other similar murders across the city in the last few weeks.

Police responded to reports of a corpse on a rooftop at 6:34 p.m., police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.

No signs of violence were found on the man's body, but the King's County police department is classifying this case a homicide, likely linked to the other string of murders. According to the official police statement, Phillip Ames was a registered Tier-1 Evolved on the National Registry of the Evolved. This is another of many murders of the Evolved having taken place across the city in the last few weeks.

In response to the news about this most recent death, and likely in correspondence with a string of many Anti-Linderman viral videos making their way around the internet and into print media, some New York Evolved have begun publicly burning their Registry ID cards. These murders, coupled with the library attack earlier in the month, is only heating up an already hot topic of Evolved registration in the political media.

With the election less than a month away, this issue is likely going to be a hot-button topic in the next Presidential debate scheduled for the 30th.
