The body of a Long Island man who shot himself to death was found entombed in a snow-covered car on a residential block in Queens Tuesday, police said.
Kevin Roman, 36, of Bay Shore, L.I., was discovered slumped over the wheel of a sedan at about 12:30 a.m., police said.
He died from a self-inflicted shotgun blast to the head and may have been dead since last Wednesday, according to authorities.
Police did not say who discovered Roman's body. But his anguished relatives raced to the block at 3 a.m. Tuesday, demanding to see him.
"That's my son," shouted one man, who said he was the father. "I want to see him. I want to see him! That's his brother. Let us see him!"
Investigators said Roman battled drug and alcohol addictions and previously threatened to take his life.
The dead man's car was parked at the intersection of 162nd St. and Laburnum Ave. in Flushing.
One resident, who lives across the street, said he never heard a shotgun blast - and the heavy snowfall made the car blend in.
"I never thought anything of the car being there for a few days," said the resident, who asked that his name not be published.
"The car behind it has been buried under snow for three weeks now," he said. "People leave their cars buried around here. It didn't make me look twice."
