He was a young man, skinny and quiet. And, on a pretty regular basis, he would call home to his native Honduras to talk with his 3-year-old daughter.
That is how Speedwell Travel owner Maria Cifuentes described the man . The Morris County Prosecutor's Office, which issued a statement Tuesday, said the man had died at the foot of the home's stairs.
Cifuentes, who has owned the Speedwell Avenue business for 14 years, said she has spoken to family members, who now are coordinating funeral arrangements.
Cifuentes said Wednesday family members had told her the man, whose name has not yet been released by the prosecutor's office, had complained about not feeling well the night before he died.
The prosecutor's office said the death was accidental and remained under investigation. The prosecutor's office has not released further information.
Cifuentes said she believed the man had lived in the Morristown area for about a decade, not including a brief time back to Honduras a couple years ago.
"He would always come in and buy a $2 phone card and say, 'Can I call my daughter,' and we always said, 'sure,'" Cifuentes said, noting the man was in his mid-20s. "He was so quiet."
