Case History
The victim was found in a suitcase, at about 17.00 on December 7, 2002 on Emleys Hill Road in Upper Freehold, New Jersey. His death is considered suspicious, but not a homicide. Police believe he died of an overdose of alcohol and heroin and those with him panicked and dumped the body. The absence of warm clothing pointed to the possibility that the man died indoors and was transported to the location.
The body had not been there for a long period of time because the bag was on top of the most recent snowfall.
