LAKEWOOD — The brother of a man who was found dead in the back of a vehicle in Lakewood is "pissed" at law enforcement for a lack of information about their investigation.

The body of David Koscuik, 57, was found in the trunk of a vehicle on Wednesday on Fairview Court in Ocean Park Village, according to Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer. No other information has been disclosed about the discovery, including the type of vehicle and how the discovery was made.

The prosecutor's office on Monday morning told New Jersey 101.5 the investigation remains "active and ongoing."

Anthony Koscuik, David's older brother who lives in Florida, told the New York Post that investigators from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office are not giving him any answers.

“I’m very pissed off. They just told me he was gone,” Andrew told the Post.
