The Hunterdon County Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled the cause of death to be cardiac arrest, according to Kearns.

The man had been working in the store earlier in the day on Monday, Nov. 20,  Donovan said. When he did not return home when he was expected, his family contacted the store. The store then called police, who were dispatched just after 9 p.m. yesterday, Donovan said.

The man was found in a locked, single-person bathroom, Donovan said.

"Mr. Gold was a valued employee at Walmart for many years and will be dearly missed," Kearns said. “Our condolences go out to Mr. Noah’s family and friends at this difficult time.”

The press release was issued jointly by Kearns, his Chief of Detectives John J. Kuczynski and Raritan Township Police Chief Glenn Tabasko.
