Roughly 100 people attended the Friday night vigil for 2-year-old Tierra Morgan-Glover. It was held at Shark River Park in Wall, where her body was found Tuesday still strapped in her car seat, partially submerged in a creek.

Authorities have filed murder charges against her 27-year-old father, Arthur Morgan III of Ocean Township, who remained at large Saturday. They believe he killed his daughter — who lived with her mother in Lakehurst — shortly after picking her up for a court-approved visit on Monday.

 

The child’s mother, Imani Benton, attended the vigil. She was visibly distraught throughout and had to be physically supported by other attendees.
