The ex-boyfriend recently named a person of interest in the disappearance of Freehold's Stephanie Parze was found dead by apparent suicide Friday morning in his home, authorities said.

John D. Ozbilgen was released from jail after being charged with possession of child pornography, which turned up when police searched his house in connection with 25-year-old Parze's Oct. 30 disappearance, the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office said.

Ozbilgen sent threatening and profanity-laced messages to Parze the day before she went missing, Monmouth County prosecutors said during the hearing.

Parze filed a simple assault domestic violence complaint against Ozbilgen, accusing him of hitting her in the head on Sept. 23, the Asbury Park Press reported at the time.
