The NYPD is set to soon announce a major finding in the mysterious kidnapping and death of Menachem Stark, a highly placed source told Brooklyn Currents on Sunday, March 23.

The source indicated that the announcement may disclose a "solution to the case."

The 39-year-old landlord and businessman went missing in early January this year. His charred remains were found in a Dumpster a few days later.

Police were investigating whether the abduction and killing were related to his business or real estate dealings.

The New York Post outraged family members -- as well as many Brooklyn residents and politicians --  when it ran a headline with its coverage: Who DIDN'T want him dead?

Newly elected Borough President Eric Adams condemned the headline, and organized a rally against the Post on Sunday Jan. 5

Brooklyn Currents and its sister site, HaOhr, were among the news outlets that editorialized harshly against the Post for its portrayal of Stark, who was known in  Jewish communities as a philanthropist and whose  death drew thousands of mourners to his quickly arranged funeral.
