“It is irresponsible to call for an investigation into law enforcement officers who were simply doing the job they were asked to do, which was to break up an already ongoing riot and protect innocent bystanders,” Assemblyman Rible said. “We need to stop continuously placing the blame on our law enforcement and instead come together to show our support for those who were sworn in to protect and serve the public.”
Assemblyman Rible continued, “While there are certainly bad characters in every profession, we must not denigrate all of our law enforcement officers. In our increasingly dangerous world, we should not be undermining our officers’ ability to properly protect us and themselves. Instead, we need to target the bad actors who created this dangerous situation in the first place.”

West Trenton, N.J. – Detectives from the New Jersey State Police and Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office are hopeful a composite sketch of a full-term, newborn infant, whose remains were discovered among trash at a recycling center in Farmingdale, Monmouth County, will help identify her mother.
The baby, who was named Emma Grace by the Ardena Baptist Church in Howell, N.J., was 21.5 inches, 7 pounds, and five ounces, when she was discovered more than five months ago by an employee of the ReCommunity Recycling facility on Railroad Avenue, in Farmingdale, N.J. The baby’s remains have been released to the church, which will hold a funeral for her on Saturday, April 18, 2015, at 3:30 p.m.
The headless body of Emma Grace was discovered at approximately 1:30 p.m., on Tuesday, November 11, 2014, prompting an exhaustive search of the surrounding trash. Investigators uncovered the infant’s head, two blood-stained blouses, and a bag from a retail store area in Orange, N.J. The old blouses had no tags, but their size could be characterized as petite to medium. Both the clothing and the bag are believed to be connected with the mother of the infant.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Prosecutor, NJ State Police | Tags: Ardena Baptist Church, Emma Grace, Farmingdale, Howell, Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office, NJ State Police, Press Release | Comments Off on Investigators Seek Public’s Help With Locating The Mother Of Dead Baby Dumped in Farmingdale
