Autumn Pasquale Funeral: Hundreds Say Goodbye
A priest is urging mourners to do good works to honor the slain New Jersey’s Autumn Pasquale, the Clayton girl police say was killed by two brothers.
Hundreds gathered Saturday in Glassboro for a wake and funeral for 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale.
Mourners hugged and cried during the service at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Glassboro. Monsignor Michael Mannion urged them to do good works in her memory. He asked them not only to wonder why Autumn died, but also ask why she lived.
Two brothers, ages 15 and 17, have been arrested in her death. Police say the younger teen lured Pasquale to his home under the guise of getting parts for her bicycle.
