MELROSE, the Bronx — Police released a new image of an individual sought for question in the death of a man whose body was found on the roof of a Bronx McDonald's

Authorities found Richard Hamlet's body wrapped in a plastic bag on the roof of the McDonald's at 279 East 149th St. in the Melrose section of the Bronx.

On Wednesday, police officially ruled the man's death a homicide, and released an image of a third suspect.

The NYPD previously charged Jonathan Rodriguez, 21, with murder and criminally negligent homicide. Officers also previously arrested Ayame Stamoulis, 18, on murder charges. Police are looking for one other suspect.

In charging documents, a police detective said Stamoulis and one of the accomplices moved the 65-year-old victim's body to the roof of the fast food joint roof after breaking into his apartment across the street and killing him there.
