Dave on 7th notes one of the pavers around Temperance Fountain in Tompkins Square Park today... someone has left a flower for Markey Hayden Bena, who who died in July 2010. He was 54.
His body was found on Seventh Street near Avenue C. As The Villager reported in December 2010, an autopsy showed Bena died from "complications of blunt impact injury of head." However, the manner of death was still "undetermined."
