The president of the West Orange Township Council Tuesday night assured the mother of a slain 22-year-old West Orange man "an example would be set" after two West Orange police officers allegedly discussed the death on Facebook, a violation of township social media policy.
Council President Victor Cirilo told Raymar Lecky's mother Jean, "I am very confident we will deal with it in the right way," after Lecky told council members to deal seriously with the Facebook comments allegedly made by West Orange Sgt. William Mango and Officer Karen Roach and demanded the officers be fired, according to a NJ.com report.
Both officers' behavior remains under internal affairs investigation after comments posted on Facebook questioned whether Lecky had been caught up in drug violence and was a member of a gang.
Raymar Lecky was shot and killed on New Year’s Eve following an argument over a woman with his friend Dwayne Edwards, 21, in Newark.
