At the same time, NYPD investigators are working around the clock to solve the mystery of this gruesome and senseless murder.

Police detectives aren’t saying much, but they have contended that Menachem passed away from compression asphyxiation, probably caused when the assailants sat on him after kidnapping him in a Dodge minivan.

Police sources stated that Menachem was likely no longer alive when the thugs who captured him lit his body on fire and deposited it in a Great Neck, Long Island, dumpster.
