The New Jersey State Police Seek Help To Identify Body

Sea Isle City, N.J. - Detectives from the New Jersey State Police Major Crime Unit are seeking the publicís assistance in identifying an unknown male recovered from the Atlantic Ocean. The body was recovered approximately one mile off shore in the area of Townsends Inlet, Cape May County.

At 7:51 a.m. a Captain of a marine vessel traveling from the Bahamas to Connecticut advised that he had seen the body of a human being floating in the water in that area. The United States Coast Guard and New Jersey State Police Marine Services Bureau responded to the location and retrieved the body from the water.

The victim is identified as an Asian male, approximately 50 to 65 years old, of slight build, wearing black dress pants, a gray thermal long sleeve shirt under a blue button down shirt.

The man had artificial dental prosthesis on his lower bite and no teeth on is upper bite. He had no identification on his person. Investigators believe the man may have been swept away in the outgoing tide this morning or yesterday evening.

Please contact the New Jersey State Police with any information that would assist in the investigation.
