    Police identify the body of a decomposing man found in a Haddonfield marsh as Reginald Glover.

    Investigators have identified a man whose decomposing body was pulled from a marsh in Haddonfield, N.J. as 26-year-old Reginald Glover of Philadelphia.

    Earlier Tuesday, investigators released distinctive tattoos of Glover and asked the public to help identify him. They were able to locate his family, however, based on some material they found on Glover's body.

    An autopsy revealed that Glover had been stabbed 10 to 11 times, but that's not what killed him. The wounds were self-inflicted, according to the Camden Count Prosecutor's office. And Glover's family said he was treated for them in September.
