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.
