Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer announced that on October 24, the Berkeley Township Police Department received a 911 call relative to a report of an unresponsive, unidentifiable female located in a wooded area along an ATV trail, approximately one-and-a-half-mile south of Township Line Road in Berkeley Township.
Responding officers found the body of a deceased, elderly female in advanced stages of decomposition. She was later identified as Edith Liguori, 91, of Toms River.
The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crime Unit, Berkeley Township Police Department, Ocean County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit, and Ocean County Medical Examiner’s Office are currently investigating this matter.
“We are working to positively identify this female and will release more information once we do," Prosecutor Billhimer said. "At this point in time, there is no reason to believe there is any foul play involved in her untimely and tragic death.”
