Freehold, NJ – Suspicious Death of Monmouth County Jewish Inmate Being Investigated


    Freehold, NJ – Authorities are investigating the death of a Marlboro man who was admitted to the Monmouth County jail Thursday afternoon and six hours later was taken to CentraState Medical Center, Freehold township, where he was pronounced dead at 7:31 p.m. Thursday.

    First Assistant Monmouth County Prosecutor Peter Warshaw said Friday night that the Prosecutor’s Office and county Sheriff’s Office are investigating the cause and manner of the death.

    He said he could not immediately provide details of what happened to the man after he was admitted to the jail in Freehold Township, nor release the man’s name. The death did not appear to be a suicide, he said.

    VIN News has learned that the inmate was 22-year-old Amit Bornstein and his parents are living in Israel.

    After Rabbi Chaim Burech (Edgar) Gluck secured the quick release, Chesed Shel Emes got involved to prevent unnecessary desecration of the body, and obtained the release and will fly him back to Israel for burial tonight.
