    People visiting a county park in northern New Jersey found two bodies on Christmas Day, but authorities say they don't believe either death was a crime.

    Joggers discovered a man's body in a lake at Hudson County Park in North Bergen around 10:15 a.m. Wednesday. An intoxicated man had drowned, according to the Hudson County Sheriff's Office. It wasn't clear how long the body had been in the water.

    While detectives were investigating that death, a passerby noticed a second body hanging near the park's tennis courts. Investigators believe that death was a suicide, but further details were not disclosed.
