Since 2014 there have been 4 deaths labeled as “suicides” in Hoboken. Other deaths remain open, no declaration of homicide or suicide. The deaths are similar enough to raise the question. Is the Hoboken killer back?  

2 Bodies Found In The Hudson – 2014 

“Hoboken Police Sergeant Dennis Figueroa says the two men were between 20 and 25 years old. Police hadn’t identified the victims by early Sunday afternoon.

Figueroa said the first call came in to police at about 5:30 a.m. Divers discovered the men about 90 minutes later in water off Sinatra Drive between 5th and 6th streets.” – Source

When the final report on this came out, the conclusion was a group of friends had watched two of their friends jump into the water. And that instead of helping they called the police but still let one friend jump down to drown with him. 

“Elias Serrano, 20, dove off a pier near the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken and was drowning at around 5:30 a.m. when friend Edwin Cruz, 24, went in to save him, The Jersey Journal said.” – Source

While this story seems strange, it sounds even stranger when you hear the victim of the brother recount the tragedy- 

“We don’t suspect of any ill will or anything. I think these guys maybe had a little bit too much to drink. Could’ve been anything.” – Source

Either the brother is very OK with a not so concrete answer to the death, or his statement was swayed by Hoboken to take attention away from the possibility of the Hoboken killer. 

2 More Bodies Wash Up In Hoboken – 2017

“Police found a pair bodies near Weehawken Cove at the border of Hoboken and Weehawken on Tuesday morning, authorities say.

“At this stage of the investigation, the two deaths in Hoboken do not appear to be suspicious,” the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office stated. “However, we are awaiting findings from the [medical examiner].”

“There should be no concern to the public involving the two bodies found in the Hudson River in Hoboken this morning,” prosecutors added Tuesday evening.” – Source

As usual, Hoboken police defaulted to assuming the scene was “unsuspicious”, despite the fact that there were two bodies that washed up on the shore. 

By now rumors of the Hoboken killer in Hoboken are running rampant. 

Another Body Found In Hudson River – 2019 

“After leaving a Hoboken bar Saturday night and telling his friends he was heading home on Garden Street, westward, 24-year-old Matthew Genovese instead walked east, toward the river.

The body of Genovese was found in the Hudson River Tuesday, Hoboken Police Chief Ken Ferrante confirmed at a press conference.

At about 11:30 on Saturday night, the Hoboken resident told his friends at McSwiggan’s Pub that he was headed home, a 10-minute walk, officials said Tuesday morning.” – Source

Is this the act of the Hoboken killer? Or could all of these acts truly be accidents?
