Man Found dead in Brooklyn Creek Near Music Complex for Second Time Since June

For the second time since June, a man who was last seen at a Brooklyn music complex was found dead at a nearby creek, according to the New York City Police Department. The body of John Castic, 27, was discovered in Newtown Creek on Tuesday morning, the police said.

Castic had been reported missing after he was last seen early Saturday at the Brooklyn Mirage venue, just a few blocks from the creek, the department stated. Officers retrieved Castic’s body from the water and emergency medical personnel pronounced him dead.

This tragic incident follows the discovery of Karl Clemente, 27, of Queens, whose body was also found in the creek on June 16. He had been last seen outside the Avant Gardner entertainment complex, which encompasses Brooklyn Mirage, Kings Hall, and Great Hall, on June 11.

The Brooklyn Mirage, a seasonal amphitheater known for hosting electronic dance music events, was where Castic was last seen. A friend reported him missing on Sunday. Castic, a senior analyst at Goldman Sachs, held a finance degree with honors from DePaul University.

While the cause and manner of death for both men are still pending, the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner has yet to provide further information. The police department’s investigation into these incidents is ongoing.

Brooklyn Mirage, part of the events complex in the East Williamsburg neighborhood, opened in 2017 and can accommodate thousands of attendees.
