BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) — Pennsylvania State Police are investigating after the body of a New Jersey man was found on the side of a Bristol Township highway. Troopers were called to mile marker 0.2 on Interstate 295 for reports of a deceased man on the side of the highway around 2 a.m. Sunday.
Officials identified the victim as 31-year-old Joshua McRae, of Trenton, New Jersey. They say he was fatally shot multiple times.
It’s unclear if McRae was gunned down where he was found or if he was shot and killed at another location and then dumped at the location.
A portion of the highway was briefly closed while officials investigated but it has since reopened.
An investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information regarding McRae’s whereabouts prior to this incident is asked to contact the Pennsylvania State Police at 215-942-3900.
