A teenage boy discovered dead in a Queens park early this week was a victim of a homicide, cops said Friday.
Andy Peralta, 17, of Flushing, was found unconscious in a marshy area of Kissena Park near 161st Street just after noon on Tuesday.
Cops believe he died of asphyxiation, but did not immediately have further details.
A hiker made the grisly discovery, and Peralta initially appeared to have suffered severe head trauma.
There were no suspects Friday morning, and cops are continuing to investigate.
