Investigation Continues into Child's Death; Mother Held Without Bail

The Mamaroneck mother of deceased four-year-old Jason Reich has been charged with murder.

MAMARONECK, NY — Police are continuing to investigate the death of four-year-old Jason Reish, who was found dead in his mother's apartment in the Village of Mamaroneck Monday morning.

The child's mother, 46-year-old Manuela Maria Morgado, has been charged with second degree murder, a felony, in connection with her son's death. Morgado was found at the crime scene semi-concious, according to police. Authorities have reported the incident as a murder-suicide.

Calls to Timothy Reish, the boy's father, went unanswered Tuesday morning. A child's voice—possibly Jason's—can be heard on the answering machine.

"You've reached the Reishes, please leave a message," he says.

Timothy and Morgado were locked in a custody battle. Timothy is an orthopedic surgeon living in Briarcliff Manor.

The boy was found dead in his mother's apartment at Continental View Condominium Complex on East Boston Post Road in the Village of Mamaroneck. A makeshift memorial of flowers now sits outside the complex.

Jason was enrolled at JW Tumbles, a children's gymnasium on Boston Post Road in Mamaroneck. The owner declined comment Tuesday, but said the business will do something to remember Jason.

Morgado was arraigned in village court Monday and was remanded to Westchester County Jail without bail; she is due back in court on Oct. 4, said a statement from VOM Police.


Correction: an earlier version of this story said Timothy Reish and Manuela Morgado had been married.
