A Temple University student who went missing early Thursday morning has been found dead, and a suspect is charged with her murder. On Saturday afternoon, police discovered a body believed to be Burleigh on the lakefront property of Hupperterz's grandmother in Paupack Township.

"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. A former Temple student, 29-year-old Joshua Hupperterz, has been charged with murder, abuse of a corpse, and other crimes in connection with Burleigh's death.

She was last seen in the area of Pub Webb on the 1500 block of Cecil B Moore Avenue around 2 a.m. Thursday.

Police say they are still investigating whether or not anyone else could be involved.

Police confirmed the search, but when asked about the reported evidence found in Hupperterz's home, Ryan said he could not comment on what may have been found.

Ryan said Burleigh appears to have been killed at Hupperterz's apartment. Police found the man at his grandmother's home in Scranton, PA, and then obtained a search warrant for the apartment.

Police said the killing did not seem to be premeditated. We still have a lot of work to do. Temple Police is collaborating with Lower Salford and Philadelphia police to review cameras and investigate, said Charlie Leone, the executive director of Campus Safety Services.

On Thursday, August 31, 2017, at approximately 8:23pm, Mr. Burleigh, reported his daughter 22-year-old Jenna Burleigh, from Harleysville Pa missing to the Lower Salford Police Department.

"We are following up on any tips", Leone said.
