Missing Lakehurst Girl Found Dead

Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office

Authorities say a New Jersey toddler missing for about 24 hours was found dead partially submerged in a stream.

Friends and relatives tell The Asbury Park Press that 2-year-old Tierra Morgan lived in Lakehurst with her mother and was having her first visitation with her father in a month.

They say Arthur Morgan III was to return the girl to her mother, Imani Benton, Monday night.

Benton told the newspaper that she was informed by police Tuesday evening that the girl was found dead in Shark River Park in Wall Township.

Morgan was charged with endangering the welfare of a child before the girl’s body was found. Authorities have not said whether he’s a suspect in her death.
