State Police ID body as missing NJ fisherman

State Police say a body found on a Sussex County beach has been identified as a missing New Jersey fisherman.

Police say the remains found last week on Fowler Beach belong to 23-year-old Joshua Catlett.

Catlett went missing more than a month ago after a crabbing vessel capsized near Cape May in April. WMDT-TV reports the medical examiner ruled his death accidental.
