NEW YORK (AP) - Police are investigating the suspicious death of a man whose body was found in the bathroom of a Manhattan jewelry store.

New York Police Department officials say they found the body of 43-year-old Omid Gholian, of Brooklyn, in the bathroom of a gold exchange store in Lower Manhattan around 6 p.m. Wednesday. Police say an emergency medical crew responded to the scene and pronounced him dead.
