A 20-year-old Chester man was found dead Sunday evening in his Fairfield hotel room, the Essex County Prosecutor's Office said.
The man's body was found at the Hampton Inn on Route 46 at about 5 p.m. Sunday, Acting Prosecutor Carolyn Murray said. The death appears to be drug-induced and an isolated incident with no danger to the public, Murray said.
The man's identity was not immediately released Monday morning. The investigation remains ongoing with autopsy and toxicology results pending, Murray said.
