A special needs teenager was found burned in a bathtub at his Brooklyn home this week – which has been ruled a homicide, authorities and police sources said on Wednesday.
Josiah Green, 18, was discovered “with burns to his body” after police officers were called to the home on Wyona Street near Pitkin Avenue in New Lots around 6:45 a.m. Sunday, the NYPD said. He was pronounced dead by rescue workers.
The teenager’s father claimed his son fell in the bathtub two days earlier and was burned by the water, police sources said.
The father, who called 911 on Sunday, told police he did not immediately alert authorities out of fear, according to sources.
Police said Wednesday morning that Green’s death was ruled a manslaughter.
No one is in custody and police have not identified any suspects, authorities said.
