Dead Man Found Stuck in Galloway, NJ, Pizza Shop Vent Identified
We now know the identity of the man who was found dead after getting stuck in a vent inside of a pizza restaurant in Galloway Township earlier this week.
According to the Galloway Township Police Department, 58-year-old Phillip Maddelin of Mays Landing was found dead by employees of Two Brothers From Italy Restaurant in the Pomona Shopping Center Monday morning.
An initial investigation by police, "revealed that the [then] unidentified white male attempted to gain entry into the restaurant via a rooftop exhaust fan. During the burglary attempt, the male became trapped within the exhaust fan and was unable to free himself."
The restaurant, which was closed for two days following the incident, has since reopened.
