Male found dead near railroad tracks in Warren County, N.J.

ALPHA, N.J. - A male was found dead Sunday afternoon close to the Norfolk Southern rail line in Warren County, New Jersey, according to a Norfolk Southern spokesman.

The body was found about 10 feet from the railroad tracks in Alpha near the Pohatcong Township border, said Jon Glass, public relations manager for Norfolk Southern.

At this point, it's unclear how the person died, although Glass said authorities informed Norfolk Southern they do not believe it's related in any way to train operations.

The approximate age of the person is also unknown at this point.

Glass said police asked Norfolk Southern to halt train traffic in that area Sunday afternoon while authorities investigated.

So far, authorities are not commenting. Calls to local police and the Warren County Prosecutor have not yet been returned.
