Brooklyn cafe owner Josh Rubin, who was last seen on October 31, was found dead outside of Allentown, Pennsylvania. It turns out that his burned body was found on November 1 in South Whitehall Township but DNA testing only recently identified the remains as Rubin's.
Further, while the body was burned, an autopsy performed on November 2 determined that the cause of death was a gunshot wound. On November 16, Lehigh County authorities released forensic sketches of the unidentified victim, noting, "The victim is a white man, between 18 and 30 years old, 6 feet, 1 inch to 6 feet, 3 inches tall and weighing 160 to 170 pounds, according to a news release. The victim also wore glasses, a plaid shirt, and purple and black checkered socks." Rubin's death has been ruled a homicide.
