At about 12:25 PM yesterday, Police and First Aid responded to a Second Street residence for a report of a deceased 31-year-old male, Captain Steve Allaire said.
“Officers on scene were informed that he has been complaining of back pain for a couple weeks,” Allaire said.
The man, identified as Jose Castillo, was recently homeless, but has been staying at a residence downtown for the past week.
“At this time it does not appear to be suspicious and we are awaiting the results of the autopsy to determine cause of death.”
Allaire is asking anyone with information to contact Det. Chase Messer 732-363-0200 Ext. 5348.-------------
