PLAINFIELD – Authorities are asking for the public’s help in their search for a second suspect in the Sept. 28, 2010 murder of a 44-year-old Plainfield taxi driver.

Felony murder and weapons charges have been filed against Jonathan Morgan, aka “J-Rummy,” who is an alleged member of the Sex, money murder set of the Bloods street gang, according to Union County Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow.


Morgan, 24, is 5’5” tall, weighs 160 lbs. and has a tattoo of the word “Tammy” on his chest. His last known address was on Flintrock Road in Willingsboro, said Romankow.

Authorities said that Morgan should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call Detective Kevin Grimmer of the Union County Homicide Task Force at 1-908-447-3777 or the Union County Crimestoppers hotline 1-908-654-TIPS (8477).

Authorities found Isidro Leonardo in the driver’s seat of his cab on the 200 block of Spooner Avenue around 5:50 a.m. on Sept. 28, 2010. He was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Medical Center in New Brunswick, where he died about six hours later.

Plainfield resident Wallace Parrish, 19, was arrested and charged in the case on Oct. 2, 2010; he remains in custody, authorities said. Parrish is also an alleged member of the Sex, money murder set of the Bloods street gang.
