NEW YORK (AP) — Police have identified the man whose body was found wrapped in a red carpet in front of a Harlem Starbucks.

Authorities said Friday that no arrests have been made in the death of 27-year-old Anthony Lewis of Brooklyn.

Lewis’ body was found about 6 a.m. Thursday with possible wounds to his head. His death is being investigated as a homicide.

Police said a pedestrian alerted officers to the body after seeing feet or shoes sticking out of the rolled-up carpet.

Police said the body was likely left in front of the Starbucks a few hours before it was found.
