"Like we've been punched in the gut," Marchione said of how the company is feeling in the wake of McMullen's death.

In a Facebook statement Sunday morning, Skelley's said, "We are fully cooperating with the investigation being conducted by the State Police and the Carnival and Amusement Ride unit within the Department of Community Affairs (DCA)."

Marchione said the company was aware of people on social media making accusations and blaming Skelly's for McMullen's death, adding "it's the easiest thing to do."

He stood behind Skelly's commitment to safety.

"Amusement rides, in general, are safe," Marchione said. "Skelly's Amusements have an excellent history with the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs in their ride safety programs, their employee training programs, and we are inspected occasionally in what they call operational, which means an inspector from DCA will come unannounced, maybe not even wearing identification at that point, and they will walk around and observe. I know of several that have been done.

"We've always had no problems with that," Marchione continued. "We've never had issues where any of those inspectors have found anything. We also have staff that walk around and monitor this throughout the day. So we stand behind our safety program, our employee training program, how the inspections are done, and we feel as diligent as the state of New Jersey is, we feel fortunate and honored that we operate in this state through their stringent criteria."

State police on Monday had no new information to provide and said the investigation remains ongoing.
