Murder charges will be filed against Joshua Hupperterz, 29, who was last seen with Burleigh on Thursday morning, according to the report.

Temple student Jenna Burleigh has been reported missing by the Lower Salford Police Department.

Police believe Ms Burleigh was murdered in Philadelphia and her body was transported to a home in Jenkinton, then to the lakefront property.

Ryan said that Burleigh's killing didn't appear to be premeditated and that detectives are still working on determining the exact cause of death.

Police say they are still investigating weather or not anyone else could be involved. Hupperterz is now in custody after Burleigh was found deceased on Saturday night in a home in Paupack Township.

"This really is a heartbreaking case as many of them are and we just keep this family in our thoughts and prayers" Philadelphia police made the confirmation. Her father reported her missing later that day.

"Our deepest sympathies go out to Jenna's family and her classmates, both here at Temple and at Montgomery County Community College", Englert said in a statement. They also found trash bags full of marijuana and $20,000 inside his apartment, off of the 1700 block of North 16th Street, near the last area Burleigh was seen. "Now I know for sure that you can have a "broken heart" RIP honey", Ed Burleigh wrote.

"She literally started classes on Monday", Betzner said.

A neighbor heard screams coming from the apartment around 4 a.m. Thursday, according to the Inquirer, citing a police source. "Please share any information".

Burleigh is a commuter student from Lower Salford Township in Montgomery County.

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".

Police officials could not be reached overnight to provide an update in the ongoing search.
