Police are investigating the death of Joshusa Bressette as a homicide.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The body of a missing North Adams man has been discovered in Bronx, N.Y.

The death Joshua S. Bressette is being investigated as a homicide, according to Berkshire District Attorney David F. Capeless.

NYPD investigators indicated they found the body of an unidentified man matching Bressette's description in the Bronx.

Members of the task force are assisting New York detectives with the investigation.
