NJ man allegedly stabbed former classmate 37 times, wrote manifesto leading up to attack

Breaking News

A man suspected of murder reportedly wrote a manifesto that featured plans to kill a former classmate. The document was discovered at the man’s home by the authorities, according to Fox News Digital.

The police obtained a search warrant to search 27-year-old David Shroitman’s apartment in Somerville, New Jersey. Shroitman has been accused of stabbing 27-year-old Maryrose Fealey 37 times on January 30 outside her home.

Last week, Shroitman was charged with first-degree murder, third-degree possession of a weapon, third-degree hindering apprehension in connection with Fealey’s death, and fourth-degree tampering with physical evidence.

While no motive has been identified in the case, the authorities confirmed that Shroitman and Fealey knew each other from high school. The two graduated from Somerville High School in 2014. Somerset County Assistant Prosecutor Gerard Tyrrell said in court that there was no evidence that the two were involved romantically, according to Push.

Fealey ominously posted to Facebook eight days before her death, writing, “Yesterday is gone, todays the day, tomorrow is the mystery.”

The authorities responded to a 911 call from one of Fealey’s relatives who said the victim’s front passenger door was left open and her belongings were strewn across the front yard. The relative discovered the victim with multiple stab wounds.

Surveillance footage in the area captured what appeared to be a man in a gray sweatshirt standing at an intersection near Fealey’s home around the same time the police received the 911 call, per Fox News Digital.

Shroitman was soon identified as a potential suspect “by word of mouth,” according to an affidavit. He declined to speak with detectives on February 2 in Bridgewater. Investigators took a deeper interest in Shroitman after they received a call from a business owner about a suspicious person.

“Officers encounter(ed) Shroitman, who was wearing clear, latex gloves, cleaning his vehicle,” according to an affidavit. “Officers could smell the odor of bleach coming from a puddle located by the driver side door of the Camry.”

Assistant Deputy Public Defender Emma Pallarino, who is reportedly representing Shroitman, said the suspect does not have a criminal history. She went on to say that he has family in New Jersey and graduated from Rutgers Business School with honors.

However, Pallarino also mentioned Shroitman has “significant mental health issues” and has frequent migraines.

Shroitman has been held without bail.

He is expected to appear in court on March 26.
