Update from Prosecutor's Office on Donald Farrell investigation, Nov. 2November 02, 2007
Sixteen law enforcement officers remain assigned fulltime to the ongoing investigation of the fatal beating and robbery of Rowan University student Donald Farrell on the school campus in Glassboro last Saturday night (10/27).
The officers from the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office, Glassboro Police Department and Rowan University Police, supplemented by two additional Glassboro officers working part-time on the case, have interviewed more than 40 persons, including 17 persons questioned based on tips received.
Assistance has also been obtained from other state and federal law enforcement agencies.
The Gloucester County Emergency Response Team has helped to distribute more than 700 fliers offering a $50,000 reward for the apprehension of persons involved in the Farrell attack. ERT members handed out fliers on the Rowan campus, in surrounding neighborhoods and in Glassboro's downtown area. Fliers also were sent to Montclair State University in Montclair NJ, the school whose football team was playing at Rowan in last Saturday's homecoming game.
All law enforcement agencies in New Jersey have been notified of the incident and the reward, being offered jointly by the sheriff's offices of Gloucester and Morris counties and Rowan University. Donald Farrell was a resident of Boonton, Morris County.
