LAKEWOOD, N.J. (AP) — Ocean County authorities are awaiting an autopsy to determine the cause of death for a badly decomposed body found in a home in Lakewood.

Police were called by a property manager after a nearby business complained about an odor coming from the residence on Thursday.

Police found a dead male inside a bedroom.

Prosecutor’s spokesman Al Della Fave says there were no obvious signs of trauma or foul play.

Police say squatters have been seen in the area. Della Fave says the person was observed at the house in the last two weeks.
