Authorities are seeking the public's help identifying a man whose body was found in the Passaic River last month.
Belleville police found the unresponsive man possibly in his 30s floating in the river around 7:35 a.m. on Aug. 20, Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens, II said.
The man was pulled onto the embankment by the North Arlington Fire rescue with help from North Arlington firefighters, and pronounced dead at the scene at 8:15 a.m., Stephens said.
Since then, attempts to positively identify the man or locate next of kin have been unsuccessful, authorities said.
At the time of death, the man was wearing a blue shirt, black slacks and brown boots. The preliminary investigation indicates his name may be Reyno Vasquez Ramirez and that he is originally from Guatemala. Efforts to confirm that information, have produced no results so far.
Anyone with information regarding the possible identity of the decedent is asked to contact the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide/Major Crimes Task Force at 1-877-TIPS-4EC or 1-877-847-7432.

Prosecutor says Madeleine McCanns body not needed to indict suspect
A German prosecutor said they do not need the body of missing preschooler Madeleine McCann to prosecute the convicted pedophile they believe killed the British girl.
Prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters told a Portuguese reporter for the RTP network on Friday that “to indict someone we don’t need a body.”
The assertion led to speculation that German authorities are poised to charge Christian Brueckner, a 43-year-old convicted pedophile and rapist, in the death of McCann, who disappeared from a Portuguese resort in May 2007.
“A person can be convicted without a body being found but we have to be convinced a person is dead,” said Wolters, adding that authorities may also have evidence that places Brueckner at the Algarve resort in southern Portugal where McCann, then just shy of her fourth birthday, disappeared from her family’s apartment.Filed under Madeleine McCann , murders , portugal , 9/26/20
