I didn't say you Stated that, I said it's obviously your mentality. Go ahead and "suspect" all you want. The people who know her are the only ones giving her privacy. Fond out the general info to help yourself and your community but don't bring the woman into it.

I don't think anyone was looking to have the victim's name released or revealed with having the information of the criminal act itself given to the press. The fact of the matter is that Chief Eric Mason was NOT going to release anything to the press, until Commissioner Adubato Nesi's inbox and voice mail began filling up Monday morning. That, sadly, is a fact, whether Commissioner Nesi wants to admit to it or not. The public has a right to know about the acts itself, when things like this happen. By covering this up, or attempting to cover it up, it has to make you wonder what else people like Chief Mason are not telling you, THE PUBLIC WHO PAYS HIS SALARY OF $190,000 a year, as well as Commissioner Nesi, with other important issues like the Birchwood Development going on.

The subject of personal privacy is an ongoing problem. This was ANOTHER point in my unanswered letter to Eric Mason. Sadly, the township committee was copied n didn't reply either. In our case, I can also point the finger at Ralph Froehlich, UC Sheriff, n specifically, Frank Coony also of the UCPO n coincidentally, is Ralph's stepson. I spoke w/ the Prosecutor about this n sadly, although victim's nformation should be private, and he agreed with me, but then indicated once a case closes the files are "handled" by the Sheriffs office. Said sheriff's office does not even have the decency to respond to my many inquiries (calls, emails, certified mail). Whenever I contact the anyone is the Prosecutors office, I get an immediate reply. Thank you for your support n input to our situation. Ive contacted our Govenor, Froehlich, Mason with copies to all the pertinent others. To date, I've only received one reply. That is, from Governor's office, letter read, 'we suggest you hire an attorney'. HELLO, the first paragraph of my letter indicated this is NOT for personal gain rather to bring a call to action on many points I witnessed through my family tragedy and, to save the next family similar misery on top of an already horrific time.

Why should someone in a County position be allowed to sell our information for personal gain? It's wrong, they should not. Our prosecutor spared us many of the specific details of my sisters murder however, Froehlich/Coony n some chick Rosalie Dipietro another "relative" on an insider at the PO. Isn't this sickening? The book gives way too many details, a picture of her home, etc. Everyone knows, we are life long residents and the victim had two girls, one in high school one in college both in town. how could you do this to us and all the others they wrote about? I could certainly go media route but, this isn't about us, it's about fixing things and making a better community. (continued). )Surely there is someone out there who can help me here...I need to resolve this, I need to heal n move on but things like this make it hard. Seeing the smiling happy Eric Mason lead of CPD in the parade on Monday made me feel ill. please consider helping me affect positive changes needed here in our community. Thank you.
