He was 58. Local police said he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound and that they don’t suspect foul play. An autopsy is scheduled for today. Fahy was a former Bergen County Prosecutor and assistant U.S. Attorney who focused on white-collar crime, according to the Cliffville Pilot, a local news outlet.
