Annette Torres - A Domestic Violence Murder
Domestic violence has afflicted our community, once again, in its most ultimate form with the suspected murder of Annette Torres by her partner, Mark Morris, who then took his own life, in Bergenfield last Saturday. Their 11-year-old son found them dead the next morning in their home. The last 5 months have been particularly horrific in Bergen County.
