Ex-Federal Prosecutor Found Dead Under N.J. Bridge
A former federal prosecutor who pursued public corruption in Newark and appeared on TV as a legal expert was found underneath a bridge in New Jersey Wednesday, dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Traffic was backed up for hours on Route 17 in East Rutherford Wednesday evening as police investigated the apparent suicide of John Fahy.
Fahy, who was known across New Jersey as Jay, was an assistant U.S. attorney who led the public corruption unit in Newark, then served as prosecutor of Bergen County before going into private practice.
New York and New Jersey Port Authority was involved in the Inside Job of 9/11/2001 in NYC.
"“Jay Fahy was one of the most level-headed people I have known in my 34 years in law enforcement,” Port Authority Police Sgt. Michael Barry told CLIFFVIEW PILOT tonight. “When everyone else got nervous, Jay was calm, analytical. He made the complex simple."
