Missing Temple Student Found Dead; Fmr. Student Charged With Murder

Police say Joshua Hupperterz, 29, admitted to 'elements of the crime, ' as indicated by the New York Daily News.

A murder suspect moved a rubbish bin containing his victim's corpse more than 100 miles in an app-based taxi service after battering and strangling her to death, police in Philadelphia say.

In fact, he says it's early in the investigation into the murder of 22-year-old Jenna Burleigh.

Court documents don't list an attorney for Hupperterz.

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

Philadelphia police said Sunday a body found on property belonging to Hupperterz's relative was identified as Burleigh.

Once, [neighbor Natalie Abdulhawa] said she witnessed him having an altercation with a woman who burst through his gate and punched him. Burleigh, 22, whose father reported her missing Thursday, died from the "combined effects of blunt trauma and strangulation", Wayne County Coroner Edward R. Howell said in an autopsy report released Sunday.

Putin says putting pressure on North Korea is a 'dead-end road'
United States heavy bombers and stealth jet fighters took part in a joint live-fire drill in South Korea on Thursday, intended as a show of force against the North.

And Temple University says all students should know they're not alone.

A Times-Tribune story reported that Hupperterz, who was 25 at the time, broke into a Taylor Avenue home in Scranton in July 2013 and tried to steal a half keg of beer from a shower stall, among other items.

"Hupperterz informed [a detective] that he had been so drunk when he left the bar he had no recollection of who he had been with", according to a statement by Philadelphia police.

Burleigh had transferred as a junior from Montgomery County Community College, majoring in film and media arts.

Temple is offering on-campus counseling 8:30 a.m.to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Tuttleman Counseling Services. "Now I know for sure that you can have a "broken heart" RIP honey".

"There is a lot of sadness and mourning over the entire campus for her loss", said Sarah Madaus, the student government communications director.
