The suspect was taken into custody but no arrest has been made yet, the Forward reported Wednesday, citing a New York Police Department spokesman.

Stark’s body was found Jan. 3 on suburban Long Island some 16 miles from his office in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, from where he was kidnapped the previous evening. He reportedly was suffocated before his body was placed in a dumpster outside a Great Neck gas station and burned, according to police.
