AVALON - Nearly a month after the body of Brett Fitzpatrick was found on an Avalon beach, the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office hasn’t released any new details.

On New Year’s Day, the Avalon Police were called at about 7:30 a.m. to the 23rd Street beach for a report of a body.

An investigation was launched, but so far, officials have said nothing about a cause of death, or whether it was suspicious.

A staff member at the prosecutor’s office said Wednesday morning that there is no new information to release. Avalon Borough spokesman Scott Wahl referred questions to the prosecutor’s office, and the Avalon Borough Police Chief William McCormick.

The major crimes unit of the Cape May County Prosecutor's Office and detectives from the Avalon Police Department were looking into the death.

An Ocean City resident, Fitzpatrick, 25, was a member of the beach patrol and Avalon Rescue Squad. He was originally from Sicklerville, graduated from Saint Augustine Preparatory School and attended the University of Miami.

He also worked as a security officer, cardiopulmonary resuscitation/automated external defibrillator instructor and medic. He was a paramedic at AlantiCare Emergency Medical Services. In addition, he has worked at Gillian's waterpark, Sahara Sam's waterpark, Trump Entertainment Resorts and volunteered for the Upper Township rescue squad.
