The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office has confirmed that they are leading to the investigation into the death of a man found in the vicinity of a city hotel this evening.
Police taped off an area around The Ramada Hotel after reports of an unconscious and unresponsive male was found at a location on Evergreen Place at approximately 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.
A spokesperson for the Prosecutor’s Office said it is too early in the investigation to officially determine what caused the man’s but the Major Crimes unit is looking into the incident at this time.
The area around the hotel has had its share of issues as drug trafficking and open-air drugs sales that stretch from Central Avenue to The Brick Church train Station is present at any given time of the day some crime scene on-lookers said.
It is not clear what caused the death of this man and Essex County authorities have not released his identity until his next of kin is officially notified.
There were no other injuries reported by the Prosecutor’s Office.
