The body of William Thomson 3rd of Point Pleasant Beach was discovered around 11 p.m. after Toms River Police received a call about a male passed out in the backseat.

Sources tell Townsquare Media Thomson likely died of an overdose although an autopsy has yet to be performed. It would be the 97th fatal drug overdose in Ocean County this year.

The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office has been removed as lead investigative agency due to a possible conflict of interest with the victim. Toms River Police will now lead the investigation. Toms River Police Chief Mike Mastronardy tells Townsquare Media that foul play is not suspected in the death.
