Something like this, it’s so close by. It’s really a shock,” the man said. The station reports that an autopsy is still pending on Vetrano. Another neighbor, identified as John, told the Daily News that vagrants live close to where Vetrano had been jogging. He said, “I hear there’s a couple of shanty houses out there.” The newspaper adds that Vetrano’s father, retired FDNY firefighter Philip Vetrano, was active in the search for his daughter. h/t theheavy
