Community mourns death of Stamford man
Stamford community members say they are shocked by the death of 26-year-old Joseph Comunale.
Comunale was reported missing Monday after going out to Manhattan over the weekend. Sources say his body was discovered Wednesday afternoon in a shallow grave in Oceanport, New Jersey.
Ken Smith says he has known Comunale since he was 10 years old. Smith is the manager of Terry Connors Ice Rink, what he called Comunale's old stomping grounds where he played youth hockey.
Smith says the two maintained contact as Comunale went on to the play in the men's league.
Friends remember Comunale as hardworking, well-dressed and well-spoken.
