Authorities Identify Body Found at NB Train Station as Missing 36-Year-Old Man

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—Authorities confirmed that Marcin Gadkowski, 36, was the man found dead in an strip of Johnson & Johnson property next to the New Brunswick train station yesterday.

Family members told NJ.com that Gadkowski worked a construction job Monday through Friday in Philadelphia.  He lived with his sister in Old Bridge on weekends, according to the report.

He was married with at least one child, according to published reports.  After comparing dental records provided by the family to the body, the Middlesex County Medical Examiner was able to identify the deceased as Marcin Gadkowski.

The cause of death is not yet known, but the City Hall spokesperson insisted that the death is being considered "non-suspicious," according to NJ.com's Anthony Attrino.

Gadkowski's body may have been there for several days.

His last known contact was on Sunday June 22, more than a week before a passerby spotted the body eight days later.
