 The badly burned body of Williamsburg developer Menachem Stark has been found in a Great Neck dumpster outside a gas station.

Stark, a member of the Satmar Hasidic sect, was kidnapped late Thursday night by two assailants outside his office on Rutledge Street near Broadway, police said.

A gas station employee in Great Neck discovered the body around 4 p.m., Friday, and the Nassau County Police were immediately alerted. It took until today to confirm it was Stark, according to the New York Post.

While the motive for the murder is yet unclear, Stark had gained several enemies, including tenants complaining of squalid living conditions, lenders who never received payments and opponents of his development projects.

Stark’s family described him as “a good man, who was well-liked.” Stark’s brother Yitzky had been offering a $100,000 reward for his brother’s safe return. [NYP] Christopher Cameron
