(HorizonPost.com) – The body that was discovered in Brooklyn’s Newtown Creek last Monday was identified as missing Goldman Sachs analyst John Castic, 27, ABC News reported.
Castic vanished in the early hours of Saturday, July 29 after attending a Zeds Dead concert at the Brooklyn Mirage Friday evening with a friend.
Friends formed a search party to find Castic, combing the area around the Mirage and distributing missing person flyers.
On Monday, New York City Council member Jen Gutierrez, who serves the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, posted the missing person’s flyer on Twitter.
According to the New York City Police Department, Castic’s body was discovered in Newtown Creek in the East Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn around 11:00 am on Monday after 911 received a call about a body floating in the water.
An NYPD Harbor Unit was dispatched to the scene and recovered Castic’s body from the water. He was pronounced dead at the scene, the NYPD said.
David Solomon, the CEO of Goldman Sachs said in a statement that Castic was a member of the bank’s Controllers team who worked closely with the Asset and Wealth Management business. Solomon said the firm is “shocked and saddened” by Castic’s death and extended condolences to his family.
John Castic was born in Illinois and graduated from DePaul University in Chicago. He began working at Goldman Sachs in August 2022.
The medical examiner is expected to conduct an autopsy.
The New York Post reported that Castic is the second person in recent weeks to go missing after attending a concert at the Brooklyn Mirage.
In June, 27-year-old Karl Clemente was turned away from the Mirage for allegedly drinking alcohol when he went with friends to attend a concert.
Days later, Clemente’s body was found behind a warehouse a half mile from Newtown Creek. However, his death was not considered suspicious.
