Missing NJ man's cause of death still a mystery

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Authorities still don't know what caused the death of a man whose skeletal remains were found earlier this year behind the southern New Jersey apartment complex where he lived.

Gloucester County prosecutors tell The South Jersey Times (http://bit.ly/Jl2JQu) that an autopsy could not determine a cause of death for 62-year-old Michael Miller.

Miller's badly decomposed remains were found in October by a person passing through some woods behind the Washington Way Apartments in Washington Township. That discovery came nearly a year after Miller was reported missing by the apartment complex's property manager.

Authorities have said Miller lived alone, and his car was still parked at his apartment and his cellphone was left in his residence. His remains were identified by jewelry and medical records.
