Posted yesterday on The Hoboken Reporter:
"The man found dead at his Grand Street apartment in Hoboken almost exactly a month ago has been identified by law enforcement as 51-year-old Leonid Markevitch. His cause of death has been ruled a suicide, Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Leo Hernandez told The Hoboken Reporter on Wednesday afternoon."No date has been posted for Markevitch's memorial service.

No official word nor update from the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office, but the shooting victim's obituary has been posted online.
R.I.P., Mr. Markevitch.

Folks, the only thing I can glean from the silence of The Hudson County Prosecutor's office is the investigation is ongoing. They have not yet released the victim's name. Repeating anything one hears may compromise the investigation, so best say nothing.

Crime scene tape gone, police gone. Everything back to normal- or is it?
I am sure the neighbors and folks nearby (hint hint) would like some assurance the suspect is not at large.
Hopefully the Hudson County Prosecutor's office will have an update tomorrow.
Update- These pics were taken at 11:00AM.

Cyber-toilet, rumor-mongering Hoboken411 has published the [alleged] identity of this morning's shooting victim.
GA is waiting for official release of his name, which should occur after family has been notified.
HOBOKEN, N.J. – A man was fatally shot inside a Hoboken apartment early Monday, making his death the first reported homicide in the New Jersey city in three years. The shooting occurred after 1 a.m. at 706 Grand St., police said.GA was shocked to hear of today's shooting which occurred, literally around the block.
The address reported, 706 Grand Street, is the home of a well-known civic activist and Hoboken school board candidate in 2010 and 2012 races. The victim is reported to be a middle-aged man.
My sympathies to the family and friends of the victim, whose name has not yet been released in the media.
