Reward Offered in MaCaw Killing
Law enforcement officials are seeking the public’s help in investigating the murder of a 22-year-old former Rutgers student in New Brunswick — and they are offering cash rewards to those who come forward with information.
Crime Stoppers of Middlesex County Inc. is offering the rewards for information that leads to an arrest in the killing, Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Anthony A. Caputo, director of the New Brunswick Police Department, announced Saturday.
William R. MaCaw, a 22-year-old Kean University student, was beaten to death. His body was discovered in the backyard of a house on Hartwell Street on Feb. 15. MaCaw, who is from Gallatin, Tenn., was pronounced dead at the scene. The Middlesex County Medical Examiner’s Office has determined that McCaw died from blunt force trauma, according to the release.
MaCaw would visit New Brunswick to visit friends, according to the release. An investigation by Detective Ronoldy Martinez of the New Brunswick Police Department and Investigator Michael Daniewicz of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined that MaCaw “had no known connection to the residents of the property where his body was discovered,” the release said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Martinez of the New Brunswick Police Department at (732) 745-5217, extension 6028, or Investigator Daniewicz of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-4018.
