CLIFTON — Authorities are investigating the deaths of two people found dead inside a North Jersey home.
Clifton police found the two bodies at a home near the corner of 3rd Street and Hadley Avenue on Tuesday, according to Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes. The officers were conducting a well-being check.
The deceased have been identified as Zofia Koc, 73, and Peter Koc, 33, both of Clifton.

Records show likely mother, son relationship
A home located at 111 3rd Street in Clifton was bought by a man named Antoni Koc in 1994, according to property records. The home is located near the intersection with Hadley Ave.
Antoni Koc was husband to Zofia and father to Peter, according to his obituary. He died in 2022. The exact relationship between Zofia and Peter has not been confirmed by authorities.
Valdes said officials would not release further information until later. The investigation into the deaths is active and ongoing.
