ID of Body Pulled from Hudson Confirmed
Police have identified a body pulled out of the Hudson River on Tuesday as that of Andrew Jarzyk of Hoboken.
Hoboken police say the identification of the body found behind the Hoboken Terminal was made Tuesday night by the state Regional Medical Examiner's Office in Newark through the forensic analysis of Jarzyk's teeth and several "personal identifiers." They say the body showed no signs of trauma that would have indicated foul play. However, a cause of death has not been determined.
Steve Jawrzyk wrote on the Facebook page created by the family of Andrew Jawrzyk on Tuesday that their search coming to a "tragic ending" and offered thanks for the support during the search for the 27-year-old who went missing in March."We have been able to get through this because of love, faith, and outpouring support that we have received from everyone."
Andrew, a banker who had recently been promoted, went for a jog along the Hudson River early on the morning of Sunday, March 24 after a night out with friends and had not been seen since. Video images were released of his run and a $10,000 reward for information was posted. Friends, family and the community mounted a large search for him as NYPD divers and Hoboken Police searched the Hudson several times.
