The body of a Mercer County Community College student was found Monday morning across from the school on Old Trenton Road in West Windsor, more than a month since Nicholas Pratico’s family had reported him missing.
Hamilton and New Jersey State Police discovered the 18-year-old around 10 a.m., said Hamilton Police in declining to release further details about the case. The Middlesex County Medical Examiner’s Office would perform an autopsy, police said.
Pratico, a freshman at the school, had been reported missing on Sept. 20.
Authorities asked anyone with information to call Hamilton Detective Len Gadsby at 609-581-4032 or Hamilton Police at 609-581-4008.
