The dead man’s identity is being withheld because his next of kin have yet to be notified. He was found on the stoop of 419 Bloomfield St. Monday morning, said a Hoboken resident who witnessed the scene.
Foul play is not suspected, said Falco. The man was unconscious and unresponsive when he was found, but it isn’t clear whether he was pronounced dead by an ambulance crew on the scene or a medical examiner.
The Hoboken Police and Fire Departments were on the scene by 8:30, the witness said, and a sheet was placed over the body. A spokesman for the Hudson County Prosecutor’s office said that his office was not involved because there is no homicide investigation underway. – Dean DeChiaro
