Man found dead hanging from rope on Atlantic City hotel balcony

A 59-year-old man was found dead Monday hanging from a rope tied to an upper floor balcony of an Atlantic City hotel, city police said.

Investigators said the man was from Plainsboro, Middlesex County, but provided no additional information on his identity. He was found shortly before 5:30 a.m. at the 32-floor Club Wyndham Skyline Tower after a 911 call from a passerby.

Officers were escorted to a hotel room and discovered a rope tied around the balcony railing. The city fire department helped pull the body back to the balcony, police said.

City police Lieutenant Kevin Fair said Monday there was “no belief of criminal activity” related to the incident. He said an investigation is continuing into a cause of death.

The hotel is located a block from the Atlantic City Boardwalk and features balconies with ocean and city views, according to a brochure.
