NewsChannel 13 is also learning what unfolded as his family realized something was wrong.

Both Rabadi and his wife, Elana Radin, worked at St. Peter’s Hospital as physician’s assistants.

It’s considered to be unusual for any physician assistant to be late to work.

Rabadi’s wife called 911 after he didn’t respond to her and did not show up to work.

Police went to the home to do a welfare check, and that’s when they found him.
