A body found floating in a New York City creek has been identified as missing Goldman Sachs staffer John Castic, his father told Fox News Digital.
Mr. Castic, 27, was last seen Saturday around 2:30 a.m. Leaving a Zeds Dead concert at The Brooklyn Mirage in the East Williamsburg neighborhood. “They found his body and confirmed it’s him,” her father, Jeffrey Castic, told Fox News Digital. “It appears to have been a misadventure. They found his wallet and phone.” NYPD detectives called the family shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday to break the news. A passerby saw Castic’s body floating in a section of Newtown Creek called the English Kills at 11:09 a.m. Tuesday and called 911, according to police. NYPD harbor units arrived and pulled Castic out of the water.

John Castic missing after attending an NYC concert, Found Dead in Newtown Creek
The DePaul University grad had worked as a senior analyst for Goldman Sachs for about a year. “He was so smart but, in the end, he did something dumb and it cost him,” Jeffrey Castic told Fox News Digital. “We think he might have been affected, we don’t know, and it was just a lapse in judgment.” The city medical examiner will perform an autopsy and determine Castic’s cause of death, police said in a statement. The investigation is ongoing. Another man, psychologist Karl Clemente, 27, disappeared from the same music venue on June 11 and was found dead five days later in Newtown Creek.
Clemente’s father isn’t so sure it was an accident and says he thinks the two cases could be related. There’s something weird here,” Alex Clemente said. “There may be some connection.” The staff at the venue turned Clemente away because they said he had been drinking, his father told Fox News Digital. Video surveillance shows him walking to a nearby gas station, but there was no footage of him inside. Additional footage recorded minutes later reportedly shows Clemente running down Avenida Metropolitana. “Why was he running?” Alex Clemente said. “Someone was chasing him. There’s something fishy here.” Unlike Castic, Clemente’s wallet and phone were not found with his body. Police said the investigation into Clemente’s death remains open.
