  1. For case #9643652, the shorts with “Marlboro Hospital” might mean a link to the Marlboro Psychiatric Center, which closed in 1998. Many patients were transferred to the old Overbrook Psychiatric in Cedar Grove, which was on the Caldwell train line. It would not be surprising if this poor soul had been a patient at one or both of these former facilities.
