Authorities say the condition in which his body was found in his mobile home in the Pine Acres Park development Monday leads them to pursue it as a homicide.

An autopsy today is expected to determine the cause and manner of death. Preliminary investigations indicated head trauma.

Emergency services workers responded to a 911 call of a man unconscious and not breathing around 5:18 Monday afternoon. Investigators soon labeled the incident suspicious.

Verdicchio was last seen Sunday, May 12, attending 9 AM mass at Saint Paul Lutheran Church on Cable Avenue in Beachwood.

Authorities are especially interested in speaking with anyone who might have seen Verdicchio between 10 AM Sunday and 5 PM Monday.

Manchester Township Police can be reached by phone at 732-657-6111 or through their online confidential tip line. Reach the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office at 732-929-2027.
