WOODBRIDGE — Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan and Robert Hubner, director of the Woodbridge Police Department, announced today that rewards are being offered for information leading to the arrest of one or more suspects in the slaying of an 82-year-old man, who was killed two years ago in his home in the Fords section of the township.
A $5,000 reward is being offered by the family of James A. Clement, who was pronounced dead in his home on March 25, 2010, after police went to the house to check on him.
Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact Detective Tim Laughery of the Woodbridge Police Department at 1-732-634-7700, or Investigator Scott Crocco of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at 1-732-745-4471.
In addition, Crime Stoppers of Middlesex County Inc. is offering cash rewards to anyone who wants to provide information anonymously. The phone number is: 1-800-939-9600. The website is: middlesextips.com. Text messages may be sent to 274637 (CRIMES) with the keyword “midtip” followed by a message.
Those who call will be given instructions on how to collect cash rewards by using a numerical code that will be recognized by a local bank, which will pay the rewards following approval by Crime Stoppers of Middlesex County Inc.
Police continue to investigate the homicide and are distributing flyers in Clement’s neighborhood, asking for help and noting that rewards are being offered.
Police were dispatched to Clement’s single-family house after an unidentified friend of the victim called police, concerned about being unable to contact him during the day.
An autopsy performed by the Middlesex County Medical Examiner’s Office showed that Clement died from multiple blunt force injuries and that the death was a homicide.
The investigation by Detective Laughery and Investigator Crocco determined that Clement was robbed during the homicide.
Clement, who lived alone, was found dead on the floor of his home.
