  • Search for missing Temple University student intensifies

Joshua Hupperterz has been charged with murder in connection to the death after Burleigh's body was found in Wayne County near his grandmother's home - 150 miles away from Temple University where Burleigh had recently transferred as a commuter student.

Pennsylvania police have recovered the body of missing Temple University student Jenna Burleigh at a property more than 150 miles from where she was last seen in Philadelphia.

When Temple University student Natalie Abulhawa met Joshua Hupperterz for the first time previous year, he asked her if she wanted to hang out with him. Philadelphia police said Sunday a body found on property belonging to Hupperterz's relative was identified as Burleigh.

Burleigh was killed in Philadelphia, Ryan said, and the crime did not appear to be premeditated, the police source said.

Then, using a Lyft vehicle service, Burleigh's remains were taken to Wayne County, investigators said.

Burleigh's dad, Ed Burleigh, posted a sad message on his Facebook page on Saturday, saying: "Our Beautiful Angel Jenna is now in Heaven". Hupperterz is charged with: Murder, Tampering with Evidence, Abuse of Corpse; Manufacturing with the Intent to Deliver and related offenses. Charges against other individuals are possible, police said.

On the Occasion of Eid al-Adha
The final days of Hajj coincide with the Eid al-Adha holiday, or "Feast of Sacrifice", to commemorate Ibrahim s test of faith. The four-day Eid al-Adha, or Feast of the Sacrifice, is considered one of the most important holidays in the Muslim calendar.

"Our Beautiful Angel Jenna is now in Heaven". A preliminary hearing is set for September 20.

"Now I know for sure that you can have a "broken heart" RIP honey", he said in the post.

The university is working closely in the investigation with Lower Salford and Philadelphia police, Leone said. Hupperterz was caught on Friday, in Hawley, Pennsylvania.

Scranton police filed public drunkenness and similar misconduct charges against Hupperterz in September 2012, court documents show; the case is still listed as active. She was last seen around 2 a.m. Thursday in the area of Pub Webb, an off-campus bar and restaurant at 1527 Cecil B. Moore Ave. After questioning, police obtained the search warrant for the North Philadelphia home, 6ABC reported. Her classes began last Monday.

"Those that knew Jenna described "big-hearted, ' 'hilarious" 'fiercely feminist, ' 'unapologetically herself, ' and a 'an incredibly woke young woman, '" the statement from Temple Student Government reads.

"Jenna had love for everyone no matter who they were", one friend wrote on Facebook.
