Man Found Dead in N.J. Self-Storage Unit


A man with a gunshot wound to the head was found dead Saturday in a self-storage unit in Pilesgrove Township, N.J.

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 Schwenker’s 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.

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