An acquaintance found O’Rourke, who worked at a printing company and as a pet sitter, dead in the living room of her house on the 100 block of Nassau Road, 6ABC stated. Authorities have not said how she was killed or if they have identified a suspect.

“It’s really sad, knowing someone so close to you and knowing the family, and she’s just gone now, and we don’t know how or why,” neighbor Shawn Claverie, 16, was quoted by NJ.com. “It’s terrifying it happened right next door.”
