Have you ever read the news and seen something so sickening, twisted, and disturbing, that it made you wonder why God didn’t just say, “Enough is Enough” and destroy us all with a huge asteroid, like the dinosaurs? If you haven’t read it, then I will tell you a story that will help you to cross that item off your list.
A new report by the New York Post states that a man in New Jersey was recently charged with the murder of his former classmate from high school, a woman aged 27. He stabbed her 37 times, following the detailed instructions he wrote for himself. There are many psychopaths around the world. It’s easy to argue about what makes someone do such horrible things, but at the end of the day, the truth is that evil exists and humanity is corrupted since Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating the fruit from the tree they were not supposed to eat.
The Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office announced that David Shroitman (27), of Somerville, was arrested on Monday for first-degree murder and possession of a firearm, as well as tampering with physical evidence, about the death of Maryrose Fealey.
Fealey graduated from Rutgers Business School in 2018 and worked for the Naval Surface Warfare Center as a federal employee before taking a leave “to focus on [her] life’s work” as a drug addict advocate, according to her death notice.
Ian Bockus is a member of Not An Easy Fix. He posted on Facebook: “She was extremely supportive and always had a smile when she entered a space.”
“My friend group has dealt with many losses over the years, but nothing like this. It’s not right and it doesn’t make any sense, but in times like these, we must come together as a community to offer our support.
In her biography, the woman was described as “many different things” – an artist, an anti-drug advocate, an entrepreneur, and a philanthropist. She also said that she “was committed to her vision and her efforts to empower those who are battling addiction.”
Doesn’t it sound like a beautiful young woman? Some perverse, demented individual thought that the world did not need someone of that caliber and wanted to wipe her existence, everything she was, and all that she would ever be, from existence. This is a tragic loss for the society. How many people would she have been able to help? How many people will miss out on her help? What Shroitman does not understand is that his actions have destroyed the lives of Fealey, her family, and those who might have been helped by Fealey to get out of the mire and muck of addiction. The consequences of our actions are not insignificant.
It said that the victim was also involved in Empower Somerset and 4TheYoungerMe, as well as Not An Easy Fix.
The obituary said that she believed “substance abuse doesn’t define a person” and “a toxic atmosphere does not determine the child’s life.”
Shroitman and Fealey both graduated from Somerville High School in 2014.
A 911 call was placed about a woman found unresponsive outside of a residence on North Bridge Street, Somerville. Fealey suffered multiple stab injuries, according to officials. The life-saving measures administered on the scene were ineffective and Fealey was declared dead.
According to an affidavit of probable cause obtained by Patch.com, Fealey had been stabbed 37 times when she returned home after a trip to Bridgewater. A relative reported to police that the passenger door of Fealey’s car was left open and that her belongings had been scattered across the yard.
According to an affidavit, police received dashcam video on Feb. 1 showing a man in a gray sweatshirt with a black face mask and thick-cushioned shoes standing outside Fealey’s house around 9 pm the night of her death.
Detectives tried to talk to Shroitman the next day at a Bridgewater business, but he wouldn’t cooperate. Authorities reported that they found a white garbage bag covering the driver’s seat of Shroitman’s Toyota Camry along with some duct tape and a black gaiter.
On Sunday, investigators found surveillance video from a house located on East Cliff Street showing a man matching Shroitman’s description running around at 9 pm on the night of the murder.
The video also shows the suspect’s vehicle.
Shroitman was caught by the police cleaning the interior of the car wearing latex gloves. It’s a bad look for an innocent person. A puddle on the driver-side door had a bleach odor. A bloody glove was also discovered by police on East Cliff Street. It almost seems like he wasn’t trying to do anything wrong. You wonder if the guy was trying to be caught.
The detectives who arrived with the search warrant found other bleach containers as well as a manifesto detailing his plan to kill Fealey.
Everyone wants to know why he did something like that. The police have not yet released an official motive or confirmed it, but they have stated that the two people knew each other.
The real problem in this case, however, is the fact that Shroitman, earlier this week, pleaded not guilty to the murder of Fealey despite all the evidence including the manifesto. Emma Palladino, a public defender, is representing him.
Shroitman will have an appearance before Judge Jonathan Romankow of the Superior Court on Friday.
Pray for the family members of the victim. This wound will take a very long time to heal.
