Bronx man found dead in burning building; fire may be suspicious, NYPD says

The fire may be deemed suspicious, police said.

A 35-year-old man was found dead Monday night after a Bronx apartment fire that police say is possibly suspicious.

Russell Henry was found on the first floor of the three-story building on Freeman Street, between Prospect and Union avenues, where a fire had started at about 11:30 p.m., police said.

Henry was pronounced dead at the scene.

The fire may be deemed suspicious, police said, but the cause was not immediately determined.

The city medical examiner’s office said Tuesday Henry’s cause and manner of death are pending further studies, including the NYPD’s investigation.
