Alex Ferrer was a Hudson County Sheriff Officer who was found dead in a possibly self-inflicted gunshot inside his apartment in West New York a little after midnight on Monday June 27th.

In a call for statement, the Hudson County Prosecutor spokesperson said that they were not planning to give out a statement on reference to this case.

Previously, Mr Ferrer was suspended without pay after he was charged with DWI when his Jeep crashed into a Bayonne Bar on May 14, last month.
