DOVER — A man was found dead on a sidewalk in this North Jersey town Sunday, but authorities are not saying much more about the case even after identifying a person of interest.

A release from the Morris County Prosecutor's Office characterized the investigation as "active and ongoing," and have not made public the identities of either the person of interest or the deceased.

They did, however, say there was no perceived threat to the public at this time.
