Fall death on Garden Street

Fall death on Garden Street in Hoboken, NJ

Earlier this morning, a man was found dead on the sidewalk on Garden Street between 1st Street and 2nd Street. He apparently either fell, or jumped off a building.

Police are investigating whether foul play was involved, was a simple accident, or self-inflicted. Officers were seen on the rooftop looking for clues, and the county medical examiner is on scene. The road still remains closed.

This almost seems like some sort of cover up. As a comparative, when a suicide occurs in Manhattan, details almost immediately come to light in the Post or Dailynews within a day or two after kin has been notified. (e.g. young ivy league banker jumps to his death off high-rise, etc.)

To not have a similar treatment due to the potential meddling of city officials is questionable at best and borderline criminal at worst.

This is an example of but one incident the City has chosen to snuff out. The Hudson Reporter’s editor Caren Matzner is a “friend of” and willing manipulates the press for Zimmer. A good example is the HHA board meeting where there are reports of an adjournment and peaceful reconvening when the truth is – I was there – the meeting was held unlawfully since the board failed to provide access either through physical accommodation or speakers for the public that arrived to attend. When things were not going the Boards way they vacated the chambers with no notice of what was happening and police forces from Hoboken and neighboring towns threw the public out of the meeting room. They few people who had signed up to speak remained while the rest were held outside by police force blocking the doorways. For the few who remained the board trying to wear us out by not giving notice but came back 90 minutes later.[quote comment=”223620″]This almost seems like some sort of cover up.

sorry non suspicious. Business in public is necessary to report on. Private is helpful so that those in need can be aware of the dangers of depression/etc and counseled on getting help. Snuffing mental health issues out is not a way to diminish suicides or protect a family.

That said you have a right to your opinion and I promise not to call you names.

Look up last weeks news there were quite a number of reports on suspicious deaths with follow up . No one said anything about a name.

Hoboken does not like to publish news except that which would support the “images” the Administration would like to project or otherwise manipulate. I looked and looked for more on this but could not find.[quote comment=”223597″]Sad, Was there ever any word on what happened here?[/quote]

WTF? Do you have any class? Who would use a man’s suicide to somehow bring it back to a snide comment on the mayor? You are disgusting. Did you ever think that once the situation was deemed not suspicious/suicide that its none of our business? It is not a public record that I know of to demand the name of a suicide victim.

Actually, Briank, as soon as the matter becomes a police matter, and a police report is filed,the information is to be made available to the public. The police Dept. may select to redact the name of the victim pending notification of next of kin, but that’s about all that can legally be redacted. In this case apparently no determination has been made as to whether or not it was a suicide, foul play or, murder.
The public has a right to be informed of the progress of the investigation so that they may remain vigilant until such time that a cause of death has been determined.
It is unfortunate, but the press in this town has apparently decided not to publish stories that cast a negative light on the town for, I suspect, fear of losing much needed advertising dollars from City Hall.[quote comment=”223610″]WTF?

Sad, but if this was a suicide, it is a careless way to do it. It’s traumatic for the neighbors, kids.
