MORRISTOWN, NJ -- The Morris County Medical Examiner has determined that the death of Warda Syed and her son Uzair Ahmed was accidental. Syed and her eleven-year-old son were found submerged in a pond in Grace Lord Park in Boonton on Feb 23.                                          

"There is no cause to believe there was any criminal activity involved in either individual’s death," said Acting Morris County Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll. "Out of respect and consideration for the family of the deceased, there will be no further comment on the circumstances of the incident."

The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit investigated the incident jointly with the Morris County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit and Boonton Police Department Detective Bureau, with the assistance of the Morris County Medical Examiner’s Office.
