YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A 51-year-old New Milford man whose body was found in the parking lot of the apartment complex where he lived apparently died of natural causes, Police Chief Frank Papapietro said this afternoon.

After receiving a call at 12:45, police found the body in front of a garage in the rear of 239 Reichelt Road, the chief said.

“There were no signs of trauma. He still had his wallet and his money. There were no defense wounds,” Papapietro told CLIFFVIEW PILOT earlier this afternoon.

The body was taken by the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Identification was being withheld pending notification of his  next of kin.
