Missing Goldman Sachs senior analyst found dead in New York City

The body of missing Goldman Sachs senior analyst John Castic has been recovered from a creek in New York City, Fox News reported. Police are still investigating the circumstances of the 27-year-old's death.  

"They have found his body and confirmed it's him," the young man's father, Jeffrey Castic, told the news outlet. "It appears to have been death by misadventure."

"His wallet and phone were found on him," his father added. Detectives from the New York Police Department delivered the sad news to the family on Tuesday afternoon.

A passerby had alerted authorities after spotting a body, later identified as John Castic, in the English Kills section of the Newtown Creek Tuesday morning. His body was recovered just after 11 a.m. and brought an earlier search for the missing man to a close.

The DePaul University alumnus was last seen leaving the Zeds Dead concert at 2:30 a.m. Saturday. The event was held at The Brooklyn Mirage, located in the borough's East Williamsburg section.

The waterway where Castic's body was found is about two blocks west of the venue. An autopsy is being conducted to find the cause and manner of death, but his father believes it was an accident.

"He was so smart, but, in the end, he did something dumb, and it cost him," Jeffrey Castic said. "We think he might have been impaired, we do not know, and it was just a lapse of judgment."

However, the family of another man who turned up dead after attending the same venue is sounding alarm bells. Psychologist Karl Clemente went missing after attending a concert on June 11.

The 27-year-old's body was similarly pulled from the Newtown Creek five days later. His father, Alex Clemente, believes the two incidents could be linked to some nefarious activity.

"There’s something weird here," the elder Clemente said. "There might be some connection."

The Clemente family has more to go on than just a hunch. Karl Clemente had attempted to enter but was barred from the venue because the staff was concerned that he had been drinking.

After leaving the area around The Brooklyn Mirage, Karl Clemente is seen on surveillance video passing a gas station without going in. Just minutes later, another security video clip showed the man running on Metropolitan Avenue.

"Why was he running?" Alex Clemente said. "Someone was chasing him. There's something fishy here." Notably, Clemente's phone and wallet were missing when he was found.

New York is a large city with many opportunities for criminals and miscreants to prey on people and disappear into the crowd. However, it's still unclear if either man who ended up dead in Newtown Creek was a victim of a crime or simply of misfortune.
