Authorities were trying to determine how a Hackensack cook who worked at a popular Ridgefield Park pizzeria drowned in the Passaic River on the Fourth of July.
Someone spotted the 30-year-old victim’s body on the Harrison side of the river from Raymond Boulevard in Newark just after 4:45 p.m., responders said.
Harrison firefighters recovered the body near the PSE&G lot about 40 minutes later.
The cook, who worked at Dante's Pizzeria & Restaurant on Main Street, had been watching a World Cup soccer match at a local tavern earlier.
