Clifton Police Detective Lt. Robert Bracken told News 12 that officers responded to Cunningham’s home at 1:15 p.m. after the family had not heard from him. He says police officers forced entry into Cunningham’s home, where he was found deceased. He was 28 years old.
Cunningham’s death is under investigation. Bracken says there was no indication of foul play. He says police cannot confirm or determine yet if Cunningham’s death was self-inflicted.
