Deaths of two found in Hudson River not suspicious, prosecutor says
WEEHAWKEN — Authorities say the deaths of two men found floating in the Hudson River don't appear to be suspicious.
Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez says 41-year-old Ali Harb, of West New York, and 35-year-old Juan Bustamonte, of Union City, were found Tuesday morning within an hour of each other in Weehawken Cove. The cove is located on the west bank of the river near the border of Weehawken and Hoboken.
It is not yet known if the deaths were linked or how long the bodies had been in the water.
Authorities declined to discuss the deaths at length, citing the ongoing investigation. But Suarez says there should be "no concern to the public."
Authorities say a cause of death has not been determined for either man.
