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.

ewww…. i used to walk by that underpass everyday on my way back from work from PaineWebber back in the day wondering what bodies were lying there…..

That area is a target for dead bodies, no one walks or ever goes by there. What happened to the park that was supposed to be there?

Nonetheless, that is a sad story but does not surprise me.
