A priest has been found dead in a New Jersey church rectory, and investigators are treating it as a crime. There was no word Friday afternoon on how the Rev. Ed Hinds died. His clothed body was found at St. Patrick's Church in Chatham in the morning.

Capt. Jeffrey Paul of the Morris County prosecutor's office tells The Star-Ledger of Newark that the area is "being treated as a crime scene."

Police have closed off a four-block area around the church. Chatham is about 10 miles west of Newark.
