A 65-year-old Tuks employee – who died with a bag tied over his head on Wednesday morning – was allegedly on his knees with his hands bound behind his back when discovered by security personnel.

Brooklyn police spokesperson Captain Colette Weilbach confirmed that they were investigating a case of murder following the discovery of the deceased, whose identity has not yet been released to the media but is known to Rekord.

It could not be confirmed by the police, but other university employees on the scene said that the deceased had been found with his hand tied behind his back.

There was allegedly also blood on the scene of the alleged murder.

The body was discovered at 4.30 on Wednesday morning after the man failed to return home on Tuesday after work.

A search was launched and security officers found the body in a toilet cubicle in the Musaion Building on the campus – quite a distance away from the building where the deceased had worked as a project manager, Rekord was told.

“It is also common knowledge on campus that the Musaion Building has no security,” one employee, who wished not to be identified, said.

By late Wednesday morning the entire Musaion was still cordoned off and not even employees could enter the building.
