NEWARK, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- Police on both sides of the Hudson River were very busy Sunday after the discovery of three dead bodies.

Essex County prosecutors in New Jersey on Sunday were investigating the deaths of a woman and a man right after their bodies were found floating in the lake in Weequahic Park in Newark on Saturday.

As of early Sunday evening, officials did not believe the incidents were related.

Meanwhile in Brooklyn, the New York City Medical Examiner’s office was trying to determine the cause of death of a 49-year-old man found lifeless in Prospect Park.

Police found the man lying in a wooded area Saturday night. There were no signs of trauma.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
