††††††††† Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan and Chief Michael E. Lloyd of the Monroe Police Department announced that a township man was charged today with tampering with evidence and hindering an investigation into the death of his father, whose body was recovered from their home in Monroe.

 

Andrew Grossman (DOB 12/8/75) of 32 South Rhoda Street in Monroe was charged during an on-going investigation into the death of Ronald Grossman, 65, who was pronounced dead in their home today at 1:02 a.m.

The victimís son was charged during an investigation by Detective Sgt. Keith Saloom of the Monroe Township Police Department and Investigator Michael Daniewicz of the Middlesex County Prosecutorís Office.
