Foul play unlikely with 2 bodies found floating in N.J.

Posted: August 17, 2011

No foul play is suspected in the deaths of two men whose bodies were found floating at opposite ends of South Jersey.

Police in Palmyra have identified a body recovered from the Delaware River on Sunday morning as a local resident, Tyrone Taylor Jr., 27, of the 2100 block of North Harbour Drive. Earlier this week, police sought the public's help in identifying him through descriptions and a photograph.

A witness saw Taylor walking into the river and disappearing shortly before 7 a.m. Sunday, according to police. The body was retrieved less than 15 minutes later.

Wednesday morning, the body of an Ocean County man was found floating in a lagoon behind his home on Wednesday. Raymond Figlo, 56, lived in Lacey Township, south of Toms River.

An autopsy was being conducted to determine the cause of death.
