A dead man was found in a van parked at a New Jersey train station, police say.

The grisly discovery happened Saturday, while a patrolman was conducting a property check at the Denville Train Station just after 12:30 p.m.

The matter is under investigation by the Morris County Prosecutor's Office, Denville police, sheriff's criminal investigation section, county medical examiner, NJ Transit police and the New York City Police Department, Bianchi said.
