A man was found dead Friday — with a belt around his neck — inside a clothing donation bin in Queens, police said.
The unidentified man, who had the name “Paola” tattooed across his chest, was discovered in a metal clothing and shoe collection box on Northern Blvd. near 62nd St. in Woodside around 2:30 a.m., cops said.
“The people who collect the clothing from a donation box came to collect the stuff. They opened it and called the cops,” said a worker at a nearby 7-Eleven.
Police said the man’s death was a suicide.
The city medical examiner will determine the man’s cause and manner of death.
Police released a photo of the mystery man’s ink in the hopes of identifying him.
