What does the sign posted by the NYPD on my neighbor's door mean?

I live in an apartment building in Manhattan and two days ago, a sign was placed on one of my neighbor's doors, reading: "These premises have been sealed by the NYC Police Dept. pursuant to Section 435, Administrative Code. All persons are forbidden to enter unless authorized by the police department or public administrator." The sign sealed the door closed and said it had been posted by the "Department of DOA Premises." I've since searched online and tried to find out what this 435 code is, or what the Department of DOA Premises is, but haven't come up with anything concrete.
Because of the "DOA," my only guess is that this means my neighbor passed away, but since he was young and superficially in good health, since the police were involved, and since he lives next door, I am (while admittedly also a nosy neighbor) concerned.
Does anyone know what this sign means or where I could find out what it means? If there was some sort of criminal incident that took place, is that information made public anywhere?
Thanks in advance for any info.
