New Jersey students return to school after classmate's death

Students at Warren Hills Regional High School in New Jersey returned to class for their first day of class since the death of a classmate on Friday.



Evan Murray, quarterback of the Warren Hills football team, died Friday night after being injured during a game. The Morris County medical examiner says Murray died from a lacerated spleen.



He was the only child of Thomas and Kelly Murray.



A memorial outside the school's stadium continues to grow with flowers, messages and candles for the 17-year-old. Several of Murray's classmates set up a GoFundMe page, which already has over $40,000, to raise money for his family.
