When did Dale Devilli disappear?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the death of a 63-year-old man who was discovered dead inside industrial equipment at his workplace.
According to a statement from the New Jersey State Police, they responded to a complaint of an unconscious male inside a kettle cooker at the food processing business in Cumberland County on Monday morning.
The guy, Dale R. Devilli, 63, was declared deceased at the site. According to his web obituary, he is the father of two girls.
“Nothing untoward appeared in nature,” police said, adding that “this is an ongoing investigation and no other information is provided.”
On Friday afternoon, people contacted the plant’s owner, Lassonde Industries Inc., for comment. The news “devastated” the firm, according to a spokeswoman.
“An accident happened at our factory in Seabrook, New Jersey, which resulted in the death of one of our workers,” said Alexander Roberton, senior director of corporate relations for Lassonde. “We are heartbroken by the death of our colleague and friend, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this terrible time.”
OSHA has begun an inquiry into Devilli’s death, according to New Jersey 101.5. When reached on Friday, the group did not comment quickly.
On social media, friends and relatives have paid homage to Devilli, with some calling him “a darn decent dude.”

Police say a 22-year-old man died after running out of water on an unmarked trail in Badlands National Park.
“Daddy, losing you so quickly yesterday has been a nightmare that I know isn’t going to stop anytime soon,” Karli Devilli, his daughter, posted on Facebook. “I don’t know what I’ll do without your kind and supporting conversations that always concluded with ‘all will be good, I love you.'”
“As a father, you went above and beyond and never missed an opportunity to make my mom, sister, and I feel loved and provided for,” Karli continued. “You taught me more about life, unconditional love, and the value of family than any book could ever teach me. I’m sure I’ll see you again sometime.”
Karli said in a statement to PEOPLE, “our family is crushed by the passing of my father.”
“We will do all we can to figure out why this occurred and how it might have been avoided,” she said. “For the time being, we simply want some alone time to mourn a great father and husband who we shall miss terribly.”
According to his obituary, Deville was a “avid outdoorsman and handyman,” as well as a “animal and environment lover.” Allison, his wife of 28 years, survives him along with their kids.
“Although Dale had many delights in life, none could compare to the love he had for his wife and two daughters,” according to the obituary. “He worked tirelessly to provide his daughters with a prosperous existence, sending them to prestigious schools and always supporting them in all of their aspirations. Dale was regarded as the family’s rock. He was their guardian, leader, and shelter.”
