Paige Aiello, the former TCNJ tennis player and team captain, has been found.
It wasn’t the news that the family had been hoping for since she disappeared exactly one month ago today. But her sister, Erin, confirmed to NJ.com that it was her sister that was found yesterday afternoon in the Hudson River.
Aiello has been the focus of authorities and volunteers since she disappeared on April 9, when she left her family’s house in Hillsborough, and would eventually go to New York. It was in New York, where her purse and cell phone would be found on the George Washington Bridge.
Her body, which would eventually be found one mile from the George Washington Bridge, was found near the 158th street shoreline in Manhattan. It wasn’t known until this morning that it was exactly Aiello’s.
It is not clear what happened to her after the George Washington Bridge. There is speculation that she might have committed suicide, but that has not been confirmed.
On the Find Paige Aiello Facebook page, the administrator wrote, “It is with a heavy heart that we report to you that the body recovered yesterday is that of Paige. We want to thank each and every one of you for never giving up hope and continuing to help try and find Paige. At this time, we ask for your continued prayers and support for Paige’s family, friends and community during this most difficult time.
This news comes just a week shy of what would have been her college graduation. Sadly, now, the college will take time to remember her than honor her at that graduation ceremony.
The College will consider her as a TCNJ graduate in the ceremony.
“She was a really sharp, bright young lady,” Vice President for College Advancement John Donohue said to nj.com
The investigation into what led her to the Hudson River and if she took her own life will come out, as new details come out.
