South Brunswick NJ student killed in crash had a love for animals

SOUTH BRUNSWICK – Emily Murillo loved animals, especially her two dogs and two geckos, and hoped to direct that passion into a career working with animals, after graduating from South Brunswick High School in June.

But Murillo’s dreams were cut short in a tragic car accident Friday night in Franklin.

Superintendent Scott Feder announced Murillo’s passing in a message to the South Brunswick school community.

Franklin police received a 911 call around 9:22 p.m. Friday about a vehicle that left the roadway and entered the canal near Suydam Road, authorities said.  

The vehicle was located by the New Jersey State Police Aviation Unit after about an hour search, authorities said, and divers entered and found Murillo, 17, from the Kendall Park section, inside. She was transported to a local trauma center where she was pronounced dead.
