On Tuesday, October 6th 2015 at 1210hrs the Palisades Interstate Parkway Police Department assisted the Fort Lee NJ Police Department in searching for an 73 year old Asian male who was reported missing from their borough. Officers searched the local area, lookouts, and trails along the Palisades.
At 1220hrs, P.O. Donald Liu #396 conducted a foot check of the trail and wooded area between the Palisades Interstate Parkway adjacent to the Hudson Terrace exit and the cliff’s edge. This is located in the Fort Lee NJ Section just south of the Englewood Cliffs border. During his foot check, he located an Asian male hanging from a tree deceased. The victim matched the description Mr. Sang Choi, who was reported missing from Fort Lee earlier in the day.
Detectives from this agency as well as the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department BCI and ME units responded to assist. Our investigation determined that Mr. Choi had hung himself and that no other parties were involved nor were any other suspicious circumstances involved.
