THE BRONX - A body found in a tight-knit community in the Bronx has shaken up a number of neighbors.

There was a heavy police presence Tuesday afternoon at the Hammond Cove Marina in Locust Point after a body was found there.

Some people living in the residential area surrounding the marina say they're concerned about the safety of their children and families following the discovery of the body.

Police now say the body was male. Its badly decomposed state upon discovery made a gender indiscernible.
