    Authorities have not disclosed a cause of death but initially ruled Melton's death "suspicious."

    According to Monmouth County Administrative Assistant Prosecutor Mike Cunningham, the prosecutor's office is awaiting the determination of the medical examiner before commenting further.

    A post-mortem examination was scheduled for Tuesday but a determination of a cause of death has yet to be announced.

    Very few details surrounding Melton's death have been released by the prosecutor's office.

I loved her to death,” Melton told the Press...

    The terms of their divorce, set to be finalized in Superior Court on Oct. 6, are noteworthy only in terms of their simplicity. He filed; she never contested. Neither hired a lawyer and there were no assets to be divided, no children to fight over.
