Community Rallies Around Family of Brendan Tevlin

By CYNTHIA CUMMING

June 28, 2014 at 2:38 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - As police continue the investigation into the death of Brendan Tevlin, the Livingston, West Orange, and Maplewood communities have rallied in support of his family.

Brendan Tevlin, 19, was found murdered in his family's Jeep Liberty (earlier accounts had said it was a 4x4 Land Rover) in the early morning hours of June 26. Brendan had just left a friend's Florence Place home in West Orange and was heading back to his home in Livingston after stopping at a South Orange Seven Eleven with friends around midnight.  Something went very wrong when he was brutally shot and killed near Walker Road and Northfield Avenue. 

Tevlin had just completed his first year at the University of Richmond and was home for the summer when the tragedy occurred, rocking the community and the Tevlin family. Brendan was a 2013 graduate of Seton Hall Prep and the SHP held a mass for Brendan on the afternoon of June 26. His friends sat together in shock and grief along with the Seton Hall Prep community.

An outpouring of support for the Tevlin family from a community devastasted from Brendan's death has followed, including opportunities to provide meals for the family and lemonade stands, where neighborhood children are raising money for the family. A candlelight vigil was held at the Livingston Oval on June 23 at 7:30 pm and was attended by hundreds.

For members of the community wishing to help, please visit the Meal Train website at http://www.mealtrain.com/?id=mcnxawta6mot. A L:emonade stand was held at Bennington and Village in Livingston, and another one is being held June 28 at Belmont and Spier, also in Livingston.
