    Authorities think that a missing 26-year-old Hofstra graduate who went missing was stabbed to death in a fight at a Manhattan apartment before being dumped in New Jersey, a law enforcement official told NBC 4 New York. 

    The official said that Joey Comunale of Stamford, Connecticut, appears to have been stabbed to death in some sort of dispute after he, two other men and three women returned from a nightclub on 14th Street late Saturday or early Sunday. 

    The official said that Comunale was stabbed sometime after the three women left the luxury apartment building. Authorities aren't sure how the body was removed from the apartment.

    What is thought to be the 26-year-old's partially burned body was found Monmouth County's Oceanport on Wednesday morning, according to two law enforcement sources.

    Chopper 4 showed an extensive law enforcement presence at the scene where the body was found, in a wooded area behind an old police department that had to relocate due to Sandy devastation. NYPD vehicles were spotted in addition to local law enforcement. 

    Police had said there were signs of foul play in the disappearance of Comunale, who was last seen on surveillance video entering the Grand Sutton building near the corner of East 59th Street and First Avenue Sunday morning.

    Stamford police said on Wednesday that the man had gone to New York City with friends on Saturday night and separated from them at some point. Police in Connecticut have not yet contacted the friends, but are aiding the NYPD in its investigation.

    He was reported missing by his father Tuesday.

    Crime scene investigators were later seen carrying out bags of evidence from the apartment building. Law enforcement sources said they found bloody clothing and bloody sheets, along with a luggage cart that had evidence of blood on it.

    Video captured exclusively by NBC 4 New York shows a man being apprehended at the scene and placed into the back of a police vehicle. He was taken in for questioning in Comunale's disappearance. Sources say another man is also being questioned in New York in connection with the case. 

    One of the two men gave police information that helped authorities locate the body in Monmouth County, the sources said. 

    Comunale's family has been asked to come to New Jersey to make an identification.

    The family declined to comment, but friends told NBC 4 Comunale graduated from Hofstra University, was an athlete and wasn't the type to get into trouble. 

    One friend said, "Joey is an amazing hockey player and teammate from an incredibly close and loving family. We are hopeful that he will be returned home to those that love him the most."

    Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

    Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses.

    Gold capital letters spelling the president-elect's last name were removed from a high-rise condominium complex in Manhattan Wednesday after hundreds of people signed a petition to have the building drop the moniker.

    Crews were seen removing the gold-blazoned name on the facade of the building near Lincoln Square formerly known as Trump Place.

    The three buildings dropped the name of President-elect Donald Trump in favor of their street addresses, 140, 160 and 180 Riverside Boulevard, a spokesman for complex manager and owner Equity Residential said Tuesday.

    "We are assuming a more neutral building identity that will appeal to all current and future residents," spokesman Marty McKenna said.

    A spokeswoman for The Trump Organization, the company that manages Trump's business interests, said in a statement that the change is "simply the enforcement of a pre-existing agreement which has been in place for years."

    "It was mutually agreed upon," the spokeswoman said. 

    The name change came after nearly 600 people signed a Change.org petition created by three residents to have the building drop the name.

    "Our home is our most personal private space, a building we should feel proud of and happy to walk into every day... so... THE TIME HAS COME TO DUMP TRUMP," said Linda Gottlieb, Robert Tessler and Brian Dumont. 

    The petition cited Trump's "appalling treatment of women, his history of racism, his attacks on immigrants, his mockery of the disabled, his tax avoidance (and) his outright lies" in calling for the change.

    The petition also noted that while Trump's name is on the building, he doesn't actually own the property.

    Trump Place was one of several buildings to bear the president-elect's name in Manhattan. Despite the exposure, Trump only garnered 10 percent of the popular vote in the borough.

    Authorities scrambling to stamp out dozens of wildfires that have scorched more than 80,000 acres across the Southeast have a stern warning for apparent arsonists, NBC News reports.

    "We're coming for you," David Purkey, commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, said at a news conference in fire-ravaged Cocke County.

    "If one of these first responders is injured or killed as a result of your actions, then the full weight of state government will come down upon you," Purkey pledged.

    At least seven people have been arrested in hard-hit Tennessee on suspicion of starting forest fires in the past 20 days, officials said. At least two other incidents in Alabama are being investigated for arson, while one person described as an aspiring weatherman was charged with second-degree arson for a fire in eastern Kentucky.

    Wall Street may find a testy relationship with Donald Trump's White House if comments by one of his senior advisers are any indication, CNBC reported.

    In a presentation Steve Bannon gave during a conference at the Vatican in 2014, the Trump confidant ripped into big banks and their role in the 2008 financial crisis.

    He rued that no one ever was held accountable, which he said helped fuel populist fury and groups like the tea party, according to a transcript of his remarks that Buzzfeed published Wednesday.

    Bannon ultimately would take the reins of the Trump campaign and will be the White House chief strategist when Trump is sworn in Jan. 20.

    A cross country runner for a local university is recovering after he was hit by a deer during a race in Lehigh County over the weekend. The scary incident occurred Saturday during the NCAA Division III Mideast Regional Cross Country Championships at DeSales University in Center Valley, Pennsylvania.

    Justin DeLuzio, a Senior at Gwynedd Mercy University and member of the school’s Men’s Cross Country Team, was running in the 8k race when several deer ran across the course. One of the deer barreled into DeLuzio sending him crashing to the ground. The incident was captured on video.

    Despite being badly bruised, DeLuzio managed to get up and finish the race as his teammates Matt French and Armani Rivera helped him along, according to Gwynedd Mercy.

    "Armani Rivera also paced with the duo and ran with those guys for a little while before continuing to finish the race,” Kevin Clark, the head coach of Gwynedd Mercy’s Cross Country Team, told the university. “All three of these guys could have run significantly faster if this did not happen, but made sure their guy was fine.”

    The team finished 46th overall. Clark says DeLuzio is doing okay but is also “a little sore and bruised up.”

    Mayor Bill de Blasio met President-elect Donald Trump Wednesday at Trump Tower and afterward said he "tried to express how much fear there is" over several of the incoming commander-in-chief's campaign promises. 

    De Blasio said that "nothing about our fundamental beliefs was changed" during the 62-minute meeting in Trump's midtown tower, but that he "raised a number of substantive issues" about a number of Trump's campaign promises.

    "I tried to express to him how much fear there is," he said.

    He added, "We need to give assurance that the rights of all New Yorkers and all Americans will be respected."

    De Blasio refused to characterize anything Trump said in their conversation. But he said that he expressed concern over Trump's promises to repeal the Dodd-Frank act that reformed Wall Street after the 2007 financial crisis, to pass tax cuts for individuals and corporations, to institute a nationwide stop-and-frisk policy, and to deport millions of undocumented immigrants. De Blasio said he also reminded Trump that 900 NYPD officers were Muslim. He said also he shared "deep concerns" about Stephen Bannon, the former Breitbart News executive who is now Trump's chief strategist.

    "This was a respectful meeting and a substantive meeting and a very candid meeting," de Blasio said. 

    But he dismissed a reporter's notion that he was "lecturing" the president-elect and said that "there was give and take" between the two.

    "I made clear that sending a message of unity is crucial," he said. 

    De Blasio said that Trump "loves this city" and added that he urged the Republican president-elect to send a "sign of unity" to his hometown, which overwhelmingly voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in every borough except Staten Island. 

    The meeting comes a week after an impromptu news briefing a day after the election. De Blasio, who had endorsed Hillary Clinton, said that he was "deeply disappointed" by the results but pledged to work with Trump on job creation and city infrastructure.

    De Blasio's meeting also comes one day after sources familiar with security plans told NBC 4 New York officials are considering shutting down parts of Fifth Avenue near the building during the president-elect's visits once he's inaugurated.

    Sources say the Secret Service and the NYPD are expected to meet at some point this week to hammer out the details. De Blasio said that he and NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill will outline those plans on Friday. 

    Aside from managing access to Fifth Avenue, the groups are weighing protocol for the other three streets -- Madison Avenue, East 56th and East 57th streets -- that form a ring around the skyscraper where Trump lives and works. 

    Traffic changes could come often, too. Trump has said that he and his wife Melania will move into the White House after inauguration day, but The New York Times reports that the president-elect has considered spending weekends back at Trump Tower, the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, or the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. 

    Currently, there are no standing road closures outside the president-elect's midtown home and office. But authorities have placed barriers and metal gates around the building since the election, and road closures outside the building have been a near-nightly occurrence as protesters picket on Fifth Avenue.

    De Blasio last week downplayed the current traffic situation outside the building, noting that "the holidays are coming anyway. Midtown is going to be all messed up anyway."

    The man who pushed and contributed to create a federal Muslim registry in the name of national security now has Donald Trump's ear as a top member of his transition team, NBC News reported.

    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a policy wonk with a reputation for handcrafting the legal means to political ends, says he has a plan to help Trump pull off some of his most contentious campaign promises.

    Trump has explored a variety of methods to vet potential terror threats, targeting specifically Muslims by proposing outright travel bans or creating a federal database of all people in the U.S. who practice Islam.

    Kobach told Reuters this week that Trump's immigrant transition team proposed drafting executive actions to reinstate a post-9/11 era program that registered immigrants and visitors from countries designated as havens for extremist activity.

She told them multiple times that they did not have a warrant for her arrest and she struggled with them as they tried to handcuff her. Then the officer punched her. The Flagstaff Police Department says it's beginning an internal investigation into the incident.

    Can Donald Trump bring his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, into the White House? And could Kushner get a security clearance?

    The answers, according to several legal experts, are yes and yes.

    A source close to Kushner told NBC News late Wednesday that he was considering whether to serve in the White House in a role along the lines of a special adviser or special counsel after being approached by Trump's Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.

    Once Trump is in the White House, there are options for getting Kushner a clearance in order to be an adviser.

    The president has wide latitude in designating people for clearances.

    For example, Trump could appoint Kushner to the President's Intelligence Oversight Board, which is made up of civilians from outside the government.

    Another option would be for Trump to put Kushner into a paid position on the White House staff, according to several legal experts, who say the federal anti-nepotism law would probably not prevent it.

    While that law does cover a son-in-law, it prohibits a public official, which the president is, from appointing a relative to a federal agency.

    Melania Trump's official bio page suggests that she did not complete a college degree in Slovenia, as she previously claimed on her own website, NBC News reported.

    The future first lady's bio on Donald Trump's government website says that she "paused her studies to advance her modeling career in Milan and Paris." It does not say whether she resumed or completed the degree.

    As recently as July, Melania Trump's personal site said she obtained a degree in design and architecture at an unspecified university in Slovenia, her country of birth. It did not say when or where of whether she completed the degree but said she was working as a model at the time and "jetting between photo shoots in Paris and Milan."
