Leonia police investigating body found at apartment complex

LEONIA - Prosecutors in Bergen County are investigating after a decomposing body was found Friday in Leonia.

Police say workers at the Lakeview Apartment complex in Leonia discovered the decomposing body of a man near a Dumpster around noon. One of the workers claims he recognized the man based on his clothing, and says that same man was chased off the property about a week ago Monday.

Investigators are working to find out how the man died, and how long the body had been there before it was discovered.

So far, police are treating the investigation as a possible homicide.
