Body of Yanki Kraus Found, 24 Hours After Disappearing

The body of a 21-year-old haredi man from Brooklyn was found on Wednesday, one day after he told his wife he would be late coming to meet her.

The man, Yanki Kraus, disappeared shortly after speaking to his wife on Tuesday. Since then, dozens of haredi volunteers participated in searching for him.

Kraus was supposed to meet his wife Rivkie at 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday, but an hour before the meeting sent her a text message saying that he would not be on time. His wife then asked him to come home at 4:30 p.m., and he replied “okay”. This was the last interaction with him.

The local Shomrim organization disseminated Kraus’ photograph and personal details throughout the Borough Park area over the last 24 hours, asking the public to try and locate him.

So far no details were made public with regards to the circumstances of his death.

    כיממה מאז הודיע לאישתו שהוא מתעכב מלהגיע לפגישה עמה ומאז נעלם, נמצאה לפני זמן קצר (רביעי) גופתו של האברך יענקי קראוס, תושב ברוקלין. עשרות מתנדבים חרדים השתתפו בחיפושים אחריו ביממה האחרונה.

    יענקי קראוס בן ה-21 היה אמור לפגוש את רעייתו רבקי בשעה 16:15, אולם שעה קודם לכן שיגר לה מסר בהודעת טקסט לפיו הוא לא יגיע. רעייתו ביקשה שישוב ב-16:30, והוא השיב לה “בסדר”. זו הייתה האינטרקציה האחרונה איתו.

    בארגון “השומרים” פרסמו בשעות האחרונות ברחבי שכונת בורו פארק את תמונתו ופרטיו האישיים, וביקשו מהציבור לנסות ולאתר אותו.

    A 22-year-old Brooklyn man who was reported missing was tragically found dead of an apparent suicide Wednesday, police said.

    Yakov Krausz was discovered hanging from a rope in an elevator motor room, police and those who knew him said. The elevator room was located in his building on Webster Ave. near 47th St. in Borough Park.

    “He was depressed,” said a distant family member who asked to remain anonymous.

    Krausz, a married construction worker, was on the way to a doctor for anti-depressants when he went missing, according to the family member.
