Prosecutor, Brick Police Investigating 'Unattended Death' on Route 88

Death occurred Saturday morning

The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office and the Brick Police are investigating an "unattended death" which occurred Saturday morning at one of the Tip Top Cabins on Route 88 in Brick.

Ocean County Assistant Prosecutor Michel Paulhus said the the body was located at 2214 Route 88.

Paulhus said the investigation into the death is in the "preliminary stages" and that an autopsy is scheduled for Sunday.

On Sunday morning, yellow police tape was still up in front of the cabin where the death apparently occurred and one police vehicle was still stationed outside.

This is a breaking news story and it will be updated.

b my dad was a police officer. the department must cover everything from top to bottom. they are doing their job, and they are doing their job right. if only one squad car showed up it would be a lack of interest case, and the cops aren't doing their jobs properly. let this poor family find out the circumstances first, and then all the at home detectives can read about it. no matter what happened in that room, there is a loss and a family dealing with that loss.

Tip Top "Motel" is nothing but Section 8 housing. Has been for years, Who knows when the last time it was a really a motel.

Babies are born and people die every day, in a lot of different places. I think it is strange how people feel compelled to learn the details in this particular situation. Unless you know or are related to the deceased, you "got no time fo dat!" (it's none of your business.)

oh-really-like, half the people reading the story DON'T want to know who it is? Get real, missy. Inquiring minds!

You are a looser Mark...and the reason why this stuff is happening. You're refusal to look around and then belittle those who are aware of their surroundings in some bizzare way of justifying your own weakness is sad. Make a decision...take a stand...one way or the other. It is important how he died, and who gave him or sold him the dose. It is important to know how many people are leaving this world in this manner so that maybe we can pressure elected officials to get us some relief.

Considering I live near there and my young son was in the car as i am driving by and have to explain why close to a dozen police vehicles are at the seen most with sirens on, not to mention yellow tape and a CIU van, I am compelled to know what the hell is going on around me. If there was a car smashed, that's a different story. I can move on, but this scene demands answers. Murder? Suicide?

Dear WMS826, You say I'm a "looser"? Where did you learn to spell? If you and I were in a spelling bee, you'd be the loser. I may be "looser", but you are a pussy for not using your real name. By the way, "you're" and your have two different meanings. I envy your remarkable intelligence. Loser.

well? any ID yet? inquiring minds want to know!

The girl was harmless and the was no drugs involved, I knew her. The person the police should be looking to re-interview is Mark. He was "living " with her as he has no place to stay. He did it.!
proudnot2bliberal March 28, 2013 at 11:26 AM
Mark you sir are a perfect example of why neighborhoods got downhill. "Hey its none of my business it didnt affect me" BUT ignoring what happens in your neighborhood & in your town does EFFECT you. Just look how the ignoring what goes on around me has done for once great cities like Newark & Asbury Park. The LIEberal attitude of the 60's (&even earlier) lead to people fleeing theses areas because too many people were unconcerned & looked the other way. Neighborhood watches & people looking out for their neighbors isnt being busy bodies but a concern for the fellow human being. As for people being born in certain situations maybe if people cared & didnt rely on the guberment for their needs their wouldnt be so much misery in the world. Just look at DYFS record pretty dismal even by big guberment rankings
Sarah March 28, 2013 at 02:03 PM
Robert I don't think I know you but she was my mom. I just want to thank you for standing up for her because these people are so rude and don't get that they are talking shit about some ones family member !! I also don't know who this Mark guy is but I've heard the name and that they were most likely dating. We found male clothes in the closet which I assume are his. I' just don't understand where he is at with all this going on and when this happened?!? The police still haven't told us anything.. so it's making me wonder...

maybe he's the dude that jumped off the mathis bridge
Robert March 28, 2013 at 04:31 PM
Sarah, I was the one who sent you your Charm bracelet with your mom. We dated for a few months. Check her Face Book page. I'll friend you. We have a lot to talk about.
Diane March 28, 2013 at 05:35 PM
@concernedmomof2..Brick has NOT been in the top 5 in YEARS. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if someone paid someone off to list it as 'safe'! Alot of what goes on in Brick goes under the radar, especially the DRUG EPIDEMIC!!! The fines and punishment for having drugs or dealing drugs is a slap on the wrist! People live next door to drug activity and dealers and don't even know it or turn their cheek to it! You are right, Brick has gone down the tubes. One political figure even called Brick "the new slums of NJ!" The best thing I have ever done was move my two kids out of that town and county!!
joanna March 29, 2013 at 07:58 PM
Sarah, My sincere condolences go out to your and your family.
joanna March 29, 2013 at 08:30 PM
I would like to speak with you off the records.. Please send me an email address or some form of contact...
joanna April 05, 2013 at 05:06 PM
Has anyone heard the outcome of this incident?
Geta Life April 07, 2013 at 04:09 AM
Why don't all of you get a life? Sarah stop commenting on this page these people are disgusting and finding thrills off the death of your mother because of some sort of lacking in their own pathetic existences. Do not contact anyone here and do not comment anymore. Love you kid. :)
Jersey girl April 07, 2013 at 10:56 PM
I heard she was a prostitute and one of her clients killed her and i also heard it was her ex husband only time will tell...
Geta Life April 09, 2013 at 04:18 AM
Wondering if when you all wake up you realize how sad your own lives are to waste so much time speculating on other people's lives. And I pray for all of you that you never find yourselves on the side of the family suffering through this while you're all passing judgments. Remember one day you too shall be judged. By a much higher authority!
joanna April 19, 2013 at 04:04 PM
@ gETALIFE.. I do not mean any harm in any kind of way. I simply have information that may be of some use for Sarah. Thats all. I feel bad that she has lost her Mother. No one deserves that!
joanna April 19, 2013 at 04:05 PM
I agree with that!
barbara April 23, 2013 at 10:46 PM
Sorry for your loss, Sarah, may she rest in peace.......
Steve April 30, 2013 at 08:33 PM
@Geta Life Like Hebrew National hot dogs?? The actuality of a higher authority has yet to be proven.
