    NJ - Jennifer Parks, 16, Randolph, 30 July 2005

    A Morris County man was charged with murder after the body of a missing teenage girl was found in a steamer trunk in Bergen County.

    The body was discovered in Rutherford early Sunday by Secaucus police officers, a spokesman for Morris County Prosecutor Michael M. Rubbinaccio told the Daily Record of Parsippany.

    The officers found the body shortly after they approached the group, and the three _ Jonathan Zarate, 18, of Randolph, and two unidentified juveniles, ages 14 and 16 _ were taken into custody. Zarate was charged with murder and was being held Monday at the Morris County Jail on $1 million bail, while the juveniles were being held by Bergen County police.

    An autopsy performed by the Bergen County Medical Examiner's Office determined that the girl, who was identified only as a 16-year-old Randolph resident, died from blunt force trauma, the spokesman said.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    A 16-year-old Randolph girl was found brutally slain early yesterday as three teens attempted to dump her body, which was stuffed in a steamer trunk, into the Passaic River from a bridge in Secaucus, authorities said.

    Jonathan Zarate, an 18-year-old Randolph resident, has been charged with murder and is being held on $1 million bail, said Morris County Prosecutor Michael M. Rubbinaccio. Two other teens, a 16-year-old from Randolph and a 16-year-old from Clifton, were also taken into custody, but no charges had been filed as of late last night, Rubbinaccio said.

    The cause of death was determined to be multiple blows with a blunt instrument to her head and body, though there were also stab wounds, Rubbinaccio said. The slaying allegedly took place at Zarate's home on Old Brookside Road in Randolph.

    Yesterday, Randolph police were investigating the disappearance of a 16-year-old girl who neighbors identified as Jennifer Parks. It was unclear whether there was a link between the disappearance of Parks and the Randolph murder investigation. Parks lives next door to Zarate.

    Austin said police investigating Parks' disappearance asked her if the teen had any boyfriends that her parents might not have known. She said police did not offer her any information about how Parks went missing.

    "It's an investigation, that's all they would say," Austin said.

    Austin's 15-year-old son, Kyle Kerlin, attends school with Parks. Kerlin said Parks is a quiet girl who studies hard and enjoys reading, particularly Harry Potter books. She often swims in the above-ground pool in her backyard or jumps on a trampoline, Kerlin said.

    "She's kind of like the quiet type," Kerlin said. "She's a nice girl, kind."

    If not for the Secaucus PD officers being in the right place at the right time, and having their eyes open, this may very well have wound up being another unsolved case...Kudos to the Secaucus PD!

    What a shame. Poor girl didn't deserve to die. I'm glad these *******s are off the streets, hopefully for the rest of their lives.

    Boys Will Be Boys.........

    MORRISTOWN, N.J. - Three teenage boys were caught trying to dump a steamer trunk containing the dismembered body of a 16-year-old girl into a river, authorities said Monday.

    One of the teens, Jennifer Parks' 18-year-old neighbor, Jonathan A. Zarate, invited her over to watch late-night television but became angry early Saturday, punching and then stabbing her in the basement, county prosecutor Michael M. Rubbinaccio said.

    Amazing! What is it that would convince the other two uninvolved boys help with this task? What is the glue that binds the 3 "boys" together in this case as well as in Natalee's case?

    As relatives grew frantic searching a Randolph neighborhood for a 16-year-old girl who had been missing for hours this weekend, her neighbors were having a party.

    The sound of laughter and singing, including the strains of "Happy Birthday" in Spanish, wafted from the house next door as family members searched for Jennifer Parks on Saturday.

    Jonathan A. Zarate, of Randolph, is charged with murder, weapons offenses and hindering apprehension in the death of Parks.

    Zarate invited the 16-year-old to his home to watch television but became angry, punching, beating and then stabbing her in the basement about 2 a.m. Saturday, Morris County Prosecutor Michael M. Rubbinaccio said Monday.

    There was no sexual overture made during the time the two were at Zarate's house, the prosecutor said.

    How does the Pros know if there was any sexual overtures or not? All he has is the word of the killer. Does he think that the boy grew so angry that he murdered Jennifer because she wanted to watch a different movie or TV show? I'll bet that he wanted to mess around and she didn't and it made him mad. Nothing else makes any sense.

    Sounds like Jennifer was a nice girl that tended to her own business and didn't sleep around or party. She was probably a challenge to him and he lost.
    Probably had a bet going with his buddies or something. Hope none of them ever get out of prison.

    I don't see ANY similarities! So far, it has not even determined that a crime has occured in the Natalee Holloway case.

    Just this evening, on Greta's show, BHT mentioned again that she and Jug still have very much hope that Natalee might be alive. According to them, there are many theories out there... gambling... Venezuela... they would not go into detail.

    The only part of her theory that is certain is whether Natalee is dead or alive, harmed or unharmed, in Aruba or off Aruba.....Paulus & Joran Van der Sloot are responsible for it!. There is nothing certain but Death, & Taxes &the Evil of the Van der Sloots.!

    The notion that an individual, Paul(us) Van der Sloot, a lawyer and until recently active member within the justice department on Aruba is going to allow anyone to enter his property without official authorityu is utterly ridiculous. And simply building American sentiments to a froth with silly nightly non-news stories is not going to do anything to bring Natalee Holloway back. It preys upon the worst of people's emotions, breeding distrust in systems upon which we must rely if there is EVER to be some justice in this case.

    The similarity I see is one of shared lies , deception and prior plotting . Whether Natalee is alive or dead the three young suspects rehearsed and shared a BIG FAT LIE and implicated two innocent security men.

    My question is why? Why would all of them come together to do these things? What motivates them? Is it fear? loyalty? Thrill seeking? I just don't get it.............

    In the case I posted, I wonder how the 18 yr old murderer convinced his brother and another young person it was in their best interest to dispose the mutilated body of his victim? Did he phone a friend and say, "hey can ya give me a hand dumping the neighbors body off a bridge"? Did he say, "sure, I'll be right over"?

    I think they found her around midnight, and I said it yesterday...Moon Taurus locks onto the boys Leo/Scorpio, Saturn Leo will make order of this mystery, and I will link you to that post. For the one who said Astrology is bunk, it works and it has worked for 7000 years!"




    It seems the 7000 year streak is OVER!
