Man found dead in OC apartment

Nov 30, 2017

(Dec. 1, 2017) Ocean City police detectives are waiting for the autopsy report to officially determine the cause of a local man’s death found alone in an apartment last Friday.

Around 8:15 a.m., police went to an apartment on 16th Street for a call for cardiac arrest. Police then found Christopher Simone, 37, of Ocean City, dead at the scene.

Although police officials ruled out homicide last week, Communications Manager Jessica Waters said that “detectives are not ruling out any cause of death, including overdose,” until the Medical Examiner’s Office issues a report. Toxicology results typically come back in two to three weeks.

The Fire Marshal’s Office was aware of the space, but the property owner Tony Christ was not permitted to use it as living space.

“The Fire Marshal’s office returned to the dwelling and will be citing any and all violations that are found,” Waters said.

Christ said that he had “no idea where he was found” since he was out of town for the holiday weekend. Simone was not a tenant, he said.
