The West New York Police Department arrived on the scene, a home on 67th Street, around 8:30 p.m. after receiving a call about a dead body on the first floor, according to an eyewitness who asked not to be identified.
The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide Unit arrived shortly thereafter, with sources, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, stating that the initial investigation indicated that the death occurred under “suspicious circumstances.”
As of 11:25 p.m., authorities were still on the scene.
The West New York Police Department deferred comment to the prosecutor’s office, who did not immediately return inquiries seeking comment this evening.
