'It's Very Quiet Now': Girl's Grieving Mother Clings to Hope
10/17/2019 6:29am

Lee esta historia en espaol aqu.It wasnt supposed to be this way. The house wasnt meant to feel so empty. Reward Rises to $52K in Search for Missing New Jersey Girl Standing in the bedroom she shared with her 5-year-old granddaughter, Norma Prez gazed at her own bed and recalled the young girl curling up beside her underneath the covers. Dulce Mara Alavez had her own small mattress, but rarely did she sleep there.She never liked to sleep alone. She liked it when we hugged her. That way she fell asleep faster, Prez, who is the childs legal guardian, recalled. A Desperate Plea From Mom of Missing 5-Year-Old Dulce Mara Things have changed since the girl vanished from a Bridgeton, New Jersey, park on the afternoon of Sept. 16. Federal, state and local authorities have scoured the area, followed more than 1,000 tips and checked in with registered sex offenders to no avail.We dont understand why this happened to us. Sometimes its really hard to believe that this has happened to our family, Noema Alavez Prez, Dulce Maras mother, lamented. FBI Talked with Dulces Father in Mexico Still No New Leads Alavez Prez recalled how happiness turned into sorrow the day her daughter went missing. It was supposed to be a joyous day. Dulce Mara loved pizza and her mother planned to take her to her favorite restaurant, the one that always made her happy.Instead, a stop at the park led to the girls disappearance, with authorities working on the hypothesis that she was abducted by a man as she played at Bridgeton City Park.Police described the suspect as a light-skinned male who appeared to be between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8 inches tall with a thin build. He was clean-shaven and had acne on his face. The suspect wore orange sneakers possibly Nike, red pants and a black T-shirt.In hopes of finding her, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has added Dulce Mara to its Most Wanted list for kidnapping victims. A reward for information leading to her return stands at $52,000.Federal agents have spoken to the childs biological father, who lives in Mexico. Alavez Prez, too, has been questioned, though authorities said she has been helpful.Most recently, police released a sketch of a possible witness.All the leads have come up dry.Its really been hard for us because shes always been in the house with my mom, Alavez Prez said. Its very quiet now without her.Despite the time that has elapsed since Dulce Mara vanished, both her family and the authorities are clinging to hope.We have not given up and remain hopeful that we will determine the circumstances that led to Dulces disappearance, Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said in a statement. ... We are still looking for that one piece of information that cracks this case. We need the publics help to do so.Likewise, Alavez Prez looks forward to the day when she might be able to hold her daughter in her arms once again.I have faith in God that hes going to bring her back safe and sound, Alavez Prez said.Photo Credit: Family photo

NJ Town Has One of the Creepiest Street Names in America
10/17/2019 7:44am

With Halloween coming up, maybe this is one road to avoid going trick-or-treating on.A website has compiledof some of the creepiest street names in the country, and a street in New Jersey made the list for its very ominous name.Shades of Death Road in Great Meadows, just east of Jenny Jump State Forest and the town of Hope in Warren County, was an easy addition for Homes.com to include.According to the site, there was a string of brutal murders that took place on the road in the early part of the 20th century. The deaths include a man beaten to death with a tire iron, and another man who was killed in cold blood with the killer never being brought to justice.The site also claims that the area used to be referred to as The Shades on account of the low-hanging trees that are over the road.However, another legend refers possibly to early settlers killing Native Americans in the area and throwing the bodies into a lake the street winds along, which occasionally has pillars of mist rising from the top of the water, according to weirdnj.com.Other possible reasons for the name have traces to an unruly gang that used to live in the area, while another theory ties the name to outbreaks of malaria in the 1850s from insects around the nearby lake, the site says.While theres no one certain answer as to how Shades of Death Road got its name, its definitely spooky enough to avoid or see for yourself, if thats your kind of thing.Other streets making the Homes.com list include Bloods Point Road in Illinois and Bucket of Blood Street in Arizona.Photo Credit: Google Maps
