May she rest in peace. She was our waitress a few times & was a really sweet girl. It's a shame she got mixed up with the wrong people & things.

WOW, its great to know that a local business owner is romatically involved and doing drugs with an employee who is 36 years younger than he. I am in shock. I went to Hifghschool with Clarissa but didnt know her well I am a few years older than she. What a shame this happend because of drug use. Rest in Peace and Prayers to both families who have lost a loved one. Lets keep in mind this is the 3rd overdose that has happend to a kid from Hasbrouck Heights HS.. TRAGIC

Lets also remember that she did not die alone a 56 years old man with lots of experience past away to becasue of the supposely overdose. The story is strange is more like a Romeo and Juliet if they both died of overdose if we don't want to suggest that drugs was forced into there bodies to try to frame an assasination with a natural cause dead because of an overdose. The girl was dating a married man the had money. Lets not forget that 2 woman and 1 man was caught coming out the room the day they supposely died of overdose. I hope that the truth prevails and the justice system will not allow money corrupt their minds and judge of character ...so that both of who just past away may find peace.
