Police identified that man as Davis Schwenker, 55, of Woodstown, N.J. He lived about a mile from Woodstown Mini Storage.

Salem County Prosecutor John T. Lenahan said Schwenkers death has not yet been ruled a suicide or homicide, and the investigation is ongoing. A handgun was also found in the storage unit. An autopsy was scheduled for Sunday.

Schwenkers family contacted police to report him missing. The family and a Woodstown police officer found Schwenkers body inside the self-storage unit just before noon. Police did not release what led them to the self-storage unit, or how long Schwenkers body may have been in the unit.
