BROOKLYN - A man's body was found outside an abandoned home in Sheepshead Bay Friday morning, police say.

The body was found before 10 a.m. on East 11th Street near Banner Avenue. Investigators say the man appeared to die from an overdose.

A neighbor told News 12 that squatters often use the vacant and boarded up property.

Police remained on the scene Friday morning, blocking off the street to continue the investigation.
