Man, 73, severely burned by exploding package in Queens has died

A 73-year-old man has died after he was severely burned when he opened a mysterious package that exploded in Queens after it was left on his porch last week.

George Wray, 73, died around 3 p.m.at Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, LI, according to Inspector Jeffrey Schiff, the commanding officer of the 105th Precinct.

It happened around 4:15 p.m.in front of a private home on 222nd Street in Brookeville.

Following the explosion, Wray was left with second-degree burns on 80 percent of his body. Wray picked up the round cylinder that police say was packed with black powder, and it exploded.

Authorities said the cylindrical package that was left may have been intended for a bloods gang member, the New York Post reported. The name on the package was not anyone who lives at that address, investigators said.

An active investigation continued late Tuesday, and there had been no arrests.

"I saw the guy was on fire, his clothes were all burned up", said Audrey Campbell.

Boyce said the device is considered low-explosive and appears to have produced no shrapnel. He says the blast left behind "substantial evidence". That's when their landlord, Wray, made a decision to open it.

Postal carriers said they didn't deliver it, which has led authorities to suspect it was hand-delivered.

The official called the device simple but well-crafted.

A lab is testing the remnants of the package to determine where the parts were purchased.

Wray owns four rental properties, authorities. Police are interviewing residents of the home to see if someone would have reason to target them. The U.S. Postal Service released a statement: "This matter is now under investigation with law enforcement and we can not provide further comment at this time".
