The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office is withholding the name of the adult male found dead in Double Trouble State Park until an autopsy is conducted on Wednesday, Executive Assistant Prosecutor Michel A. Paulhus said.
"I haven't been told his family has been notified," Paulhus said this afternoon.
Someone filed a missing persons report when the man - in his sixties - failed to return. Double Trouble State Park Police found a solitary car in the parking lot on Monday, after the park closed.
They ran a motor vehicle check and were able to determine that the owner's name was the same as the person reported missing, Paulhus said.
Park Police began to search the park and located the body at 12:34 a.m., he said.
The initial investigation did not show any indication of foul play, Paulhus has said.
The man's death is the second incident of someone in distress at Double Trouble in less than a year.
Dona Timoney - a postal worker at the Pine Beach Post Office - suffered a brain aneurysm last June while walking her dog down a sugar sand path near the cranberry bogs.
Her dog Lily ran up the path to a walker and led him to her owner farther down the path. Timoney died two weeks after the incident.
