The body — discovered by a group of kids — washed up on the rocky East River shore near the Whitestone Bridge in the Bronx around 8:30 p.m. EST.

“The body was badly decomposed and found lying on rocks, the sources said. The gender could not immediately be determined,” The New York Post reported. (RELATED: Murderer On Death Row Requests Bizarre Last Meal. Read The Details)

The Trump Golf Links are a relatively new addition to the New York landscape. In 2016, the Trump Organization came to an agreement with the City Of New York to open up a public course on top of a Bronx landfill.

A medical examiner will determine the individual’s cause of death. The investigation is ongoing.
