Murder-Suicide, Bergenfield

On Saturday morning, at 10:21 am, the bodies of Annette Torres, 36, and suspect Mark Morris, 41, were discovered by their 11-year old son. The child went next door to tell a neighbor his parents were not breathing. The neighbors called 911. According to authorities, the mother was discovered in an upstairs bedroom. No cause of death is being released at this time. Morris was discovered in a utility room of the basement with what authorities are stating was a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Acting Bergen County Persecutor Gurbir Grewal, at a press conference on Saturday, said that authorities are investigating if the murder and suicide are connected to a case of domestic violence. While friends and neighbors have been leaving flowers and memorials in front of the home at 268 W. Clinton Avenue, local school officials are preparing extra counselors today for students. The name of the 11-year-old child has not been released.
