Sad news for friends and loved ones of Rocawear and Sean John model Jubar “Esco” Croswell. The remains of the 30-year-old model and actor were identified yesterday, however his cause of death remains a mystery.
A man walking near the Oakwood Plaza shopping center in Edison found the body of Jubar (Esco) Croswell, 30, off a leafy street last Thursday about 2:15p.m., Middlesex County prosecutors said.
Croswell, who lived in Fort Greene, was wearing a Louis Vuitton belt and Jet Lag cargo pants when he was discovered. It was not immediately clear how long he had been dead when he was found.
NYPD sources said Croswell was reported missing on Sept. 17, four days after he was last seen.
The cause of death is still being investigated by local authorities
We dug up a few photos of Esco to share with you. Check him out with Jessica White and Omahyra:
Bossip spoke to sources in the urban modeling game close to Esco, and we’re being told that while Esco’s numerous friends in the industry are mourning his death, it was suspected weeks ago when he went missing that he might be dead.
While what happened remains a real mystery, there are some clues that the mainstream press hasn’t mentioned — such as the fact his car was discovered burned up in Brooklyn several weeks ago.
Esco is survived by a newborn son and the child’s mother, as well as his mother, father and brother.
We hope this young brother’s soul finds peace and the authorities are able to solve the mystery behind his death quickly.
