Police Investigating Plainfield Homicide

On Saturday, July 27, 2013 at approximately 3:30 p.m, James White (DOB 01/19/1985) was unresponsive when several then-unknown individuals brought him into the Muhlenberg Hospital Emergency Room.

These individuals never identified themselves and immediately exited the emergency room, said Park. White was later transferred to JFK Hospital in Edison, where he remained in critical condition and died on Monday. The investigation revealed that White had been assaulted prior to his hospitalization and the autopsy revealed that White died as a result of blunt force trauma and the manner as homicide.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is continuing. Additional information will be released as it becomes available.
