In Wake of Tragedy, Locals Pay Respects

The family of slain 4-year-old Jason Reish visited the family in Briarcliff Manor Thursday.


Friends, family and acquaintances of Briarcliff Manor's Reish family are coming out to offer their condolences in the wake of the tragic murder of 4-year-old Jason "Jake" Reish.

Reish was found dead in his mother's Mamaroneck apartment by authorities. His mother, Manuela Morgado, has been charged with the boy's murder.

His father, Dr. Timothy Reish, is a Briarcliff Manor resident with two sons in the Briarcliff Manor Union Free School District.

Dr. Reish issued a statement yesterday through his attorneys, in which he said, "We will never be able to comprehend the heinous actions of Jake's mother" and called the alleged homicide "both incomprehensible and unimaginable."

Visiting hours are continuing at Waterbury and Kelly Funeral Home today until 4 p.m. and then from 6 to 8 p.m.

A service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Scarborough Presbyterian Church on Route 9.
