Vigil tonight for toddler found dead in Monmouth County park

    Lakehurst residents will gather in the borough tonight to mourn Tierra Morgan, the 2-year-old whose body was found in a Monmouth County park Tuesday.

    Toms River Patch reports Morgan was never returned to her mother’s custody after a court-approved visitation with her father. Authorities later discovered a body partially submerged in a stream.

    Tonight’s vigil is at 6 p.m. on the 600-block of Maple Street.
