OAKLYN, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say the death of a man found in a southern New Jersey creek this week does not appear to be suspicious.

Camden County prosecutors announced Wednesday that Marcus Fennel’s death has been ruled a drowning. But they say the manner of death remains undetermined pending further investigation and toxicology testing.

The 31-year-old Bridgeton man’s body was found around 4:45 p.m. Tuesday by two fishermen in Newton Creek, near the White Horse Pike in Oaklyn.

NJ.com reports crews have pulled two other bodies from Newton Creek within the past five years. The bodies of a Rutgers-Camden student and a woman were both found at the creek in December 2011.
