Body Discovered in Wooded Area of Old Bridge

Middletown NJ police blotter 2019

Police are investigating and trying to learn the identification of a body discovered in Old Bridge Sunday afternoon.ย  The Middlesex Prosecutor’s Office has announced that at approximately 2:45 Sunday, local police responded to the wooded area near the Grand Marquis Catering Hall on Route 9 to investigate a report of an unidentified human body.

Witnesses observed an abundance of police cars, detectives in the area of Route 9 and Schulmeister Road hours later after the discovery.

While nothing has been confirmed, NBC New York has reported sources claiming a possible connection to the Stephanie Parze disappearance.ย  The Middlesex County prosecutor has not commented on that, and only that an autopsy is scheduled to be performed by the Middlesex Examiner’s Office, Monday at 9 am.

Anyone with any information regarding the discovery is asked to call Detective Addie Spinola of the Old Bridge Police Department at 732-721-5600 or Detective Sean Sullivan of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at 732-745-4060
