PATERSON -

Authorities say that a man who was found dead inside his trailer in a Paterson park most likely died from a heroin overdose.

The Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office says that police responded to a trailer located inside Westside Park around 5:30 a.m. Thursday after a woman reported that her boyfriend was unresponsive and cold to the touch.

Officials say that that death does not seem to be suspicious, but an autopsy will determine the exact cause of death.

The victims’ name was not released.
