Man found dead in Hoboken building was reported missing, suicidal last week

HOBOKEN AND BEYOND – The man found dead in the Neumann Leathers Building in downtown Hoboken on Monday was Stuart Cave, 44, of Hoboken, who had been reported as missing and possibly suicidal by his brother last week, according to the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office.
Cave left a note on Wednesday with a list of his account numbers and passwords, and also wrote he would end his life by hanging, according to a police report. After police spoke with a colleague of Cave’s last week, the man confirmed that Cave showed up for work on Wednesday, Aug. 24, but left at around noon, and it seemed that he packed up his desk, according to police.
Cave’s body was found in the third floor bathroom of the Neumann Leathers Building on Monday after tenants told management they suspected a foul odor, Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said on Thursday. Management called police, who entered the bathroom and found Cave dead. — Ray Smith
