Jenna Burleigh has been missing since early Thursday morning Temple Police said. | VIA TEMPLE POLICE

Jenna was a student at Temple University, and Hupperterz was a former Temple University student. According to ABC 6, Burleigh may have met 29-year-old Joshua Hupperterz at a bar in the area.

Pennsylvania State Police requested a warrant to search the property for evidence. According to the police, she died from blunt trauma and strangulation.

Philadelphia Police held a press conference this evening announcing they have recovered Jenna Burleigh's body in Wayne County, about 25 miles east of Scranton. Wrapped in a trash bag with his hands tied, the 32-year-old was shot in the back of the head, according to an Inquirer story from that time.

The investigation quickly focused on Hupperterz, police said.

There was no indication Hupperterz and Burleigh knew each other previously, he added.

Hupperterz was taken into custody Friday in Paupack Township and a body believed to be Burleigh's was found Saturday on township property belonging to his grandmother. A police source told the Philadelphia Inquirer that a neighbor heard screams coming from the apartment around 4 a.m. Once, she said she witnessed him having an altercation with a woman who burst through his gate and punched him.

"I saw his face pop up and it was just like, I don't know, chilling", she said Sunday.

He offered her painkillers after she had knee surgery, she said, which she also declined.

"He tried claiming he was on the football team", Temple senior Ahmad Goode said. The TKE chapter at Temple is now inactive and the national organization told us: "After researching the suspect in question, we have no record of any TKE member by that name".

Ms Burleigh's death has left her student community "heartbroken" and "devastated" over the loss of a "beautiful young woman" who embodied the "spirit of Temple".

Anticipating Hurricane Harvey's Effect on West Nile and Zika
To protect yourself from the virus, it's recommended you wear light-coloured trousers and a long-sleeved shirt when outside. Most people who are infected with the West Nile virus develop no symptoms or such mild symptoms that they do not feel ill.

Temple is offering on-campus counseling 8:30 a.m.to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Tuttleman Counseling Services.

Burleigh had just joined the university that week as a junior transfer student from Montgomery County Community College.

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

A letter from Temple Student Government called Jenna Burleigh a "big hearted" person who spent much of her time fighting discrimination.
