    Hudson County Prosecutor's Office spokesman Gene Rubino tells The Jersey Journal that city fire officials responded to a call around 3:35 p.m. Tuesday to check on the well-being of a 66-year-old man in a Jersey City apartment building.

    Rubino says fire officials forced their way into the apartment and found the man's body piled with clothes and covered with hardened concrete.

    Rubino says the man was pronounced dead at the scene and his name has not been released pending family notification.

    Neighbors describe the man as quiet, genial and educated and a fan of rock `n' roll and jazz "oldies.'' \
