Anyone you know missing?

A reader mentioned this to me around lunch time today, but I was not in the area at the time.

My guess is that this has to be some homeless vagrant either from Hoboken or the surrounding area, considering it could have been weeks and there were no known missing persons reports floating around.

From NJ.com:

Body found in Hoboken

dead-body-found-hoboken.jpgThe body of an unidentified man was found today on the Hoboken/Weehawken border and police are listing the death as suspicious pending the results of an autopsy, to be conducted tomorrow.

The man was found outside near a bridge on 17th Street near Park Avenue at around 12:30 p.m., Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Guy Gregory said.

Investigators say the body, which had no signs of trauma, had likely been there for weeks, Gregory said, noting that it’s possible the man died of natural causes, perhaps complicated by the cold weather.

The body was taken to the state Regional Medical Examiner’s Office in Newark for the autopsy, Gregory said.

An unfortunate occasion. Hope there was no foul play. Brings to mind my thoughts about urban (re)development in connection with Europe, downtown NYC, the Pacific NW, etc. … There’s not so much as a square-inch of desireable land that hasn’t already been fought and died over. Whoever this fella was, he’s not the first person to tread that land and he certainly won’t be the last (unless Greenland melts before this June).
