NOTE: Without knowing the exact circumstances, CLIFFVIEW PILOT doesn’t identify victims in such cases, in case it turns out to be a suicide. To do so, I believe, is terribly insensitive to loved ones ( Publisher/Editor Jerry DeMarco ).
Responding to the incident, reported just after 8:25 p.m. Thursday, were Ridgewood police, including Chief John Ward .
Also on the scene were Ridgewood Emergency Services, New Jersey Transit police and the Bergen County Police Department.
