BRENTWOOD, N.Y. (AP) – New York police have discovered the remains of a fifth teenager from a Long Island community.
Suffolk County police said Thursday the death of 18-year-old Jose Pena-Hernandez, of Brentwood, was being investigated as a homicide.
The discovery comes after four Brentwood high school teens were found dead within the past six weeks, all suspected victims of gang violence.
Police didn’t immediately know if Pena-Hernandez attended the Brentwood school.
