Acting Prosecutor Theodore Stephens II of Essex County also stressed the importance of continuing to talk about the case so that it remains in the public spotlight.
Stephens said, “This reminds us that the lives of little Black and little brown girls is just as important as everybody else’s lives,”
“And we know that Gabby Petito, which is a very, very notorious case that was constantly in the news did yield results and information. So we are hoping that today’s effort will also bring some information so we can find young Jashyah.”
