Abandoned sussex county camp
The 17-year-old was a high school dropout, residents said, and lived in a small apartment above a bar in the neighborhood.Some months ago, according to residents, he went to Nevada to live with his father, but he eventually hitchhiked back to Hopatcong.Both times, authorities said, he was forced back by the two suspects, one 15 years old and the other 17. Lang, a lawyer for the younger of the two suspects, said the fight started at A. ''I think he is totally innocent as far as any homicide goes,'' he said. Lang said the motion for adult trails for both suspects would be contested.He said he was told there were between 10 and 15 teen-agers drinking beer.
3— The Sussex County Prosecutor today asked that two teen-age boys be tried for murder as adults in the case of a 16-year-old youth who drowned in Lake Hopatcong.Mountains of the Eastern deciduous forest, wetlands influenced by decades of beaver activity, and abandoned meadows and fields of yesterday’s farms characterize this preserve.Situated near the base of the Kittatinny Mountains, visitors can look southward along the sharp, granite ridge line mountain that forms the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.General visitors are also welcomed to hike at the adjoining 485-acre Blair Creek Preserve property which is co-managed between the Trust, Ridge and Valley Conservancy and The Nature Conservancy (hunting here is limited to special management program guidelines arranged by The Nature Conservancy).The Trust allows registration for deer hunting at its Blair Creek Preserve.
