The Major Crimes Unit of the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office and EHT Police are investigating the homicide of a man whose body was found Thursday on the grounds of Mount Calvary Cemetery on the Black Horse Pike.

Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner says last Thursday afternoon, a passerby found the body of 38-year-old Fausto Garcia and flagged-down Egg Harbor Township Police.

An autopsy revealed the cause of death to be blunt force lacerations to the head and a deep incised wound to the neck. The manner of death is homicide.

“With so much going on in our world today, some tend to forget that there are bad people out there doing bad things. Although this victim was homeless, he deserved better. The Major Crimes Unit is committed to finding the person, or people, responsible for Mr. Garcia’s murder,” Tyner said in a press release.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office at (609) 909-7800.
