Hupperterz informed him that he had been so drunk when he left the bar he had no recollection of who he had been with. It is believed that Jenna was killed in one location and her dead body transported to another location.

Investigators said they do not believe Hupperterz and Burleigh had a prior relationship and the killing does not appear to be premeditated. "We still have a lot of work to do, to include trying to figure out who else may have been involved, if there's anyone else at all".

"He tried claiming he was on the football team", Temple senior Ahmad Goode said.

Autopsy results have revealed 22-year-old Jenna Burleigh died of strangulation and blunt force trauma.

Any information should be reported to Temple Police at 215-204-1234 or Confidential Tip Line at 215-204-6493.

On Friday, Burleigh's sister shared a missing individual's notice on Facebook requesting that anybody with data approach to experts. Her remains were at the property of the suspect's grandmother.

Multiple news outlets also reported Saturday that police began searching a home along the 800 block of Waverly Avenue in Jenkintown, according to multiple reports.

"Our Beautiful Angel Jenna is now in Heaven".




Joshua Hupperterz is now in police custody. He had not heard from his daughter since that time, which is very unusual; after not being able to get in contact with his daughter, Mr. Burleigh traveled to Temple University to make enquiries and discovered that his daughter had not attended her scheduled class that day. No attorney was listed for Hupperterz, and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for September 20, according to court records. The motives of the murder are not clear yet.

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

Temple University officials released a statement Saturday expressing sympathy to Burleigh's family. He was majoring in film and media arts.

Burleigh's dad, Ed Burleigh, posted a sad message on his Facebook page on Saturday, saying: "Our Beautiful Angel Jenna is now in Heaven".

Waymart police charged Hupperterz, who court documents show as living at 69 East Shore Drive, Hawley, at the time, with various drug-related crimes July 4, 2013.

Apparently, Jenna and her killer lived very near, and he spent about a year asking her out regardless of her rejecting him.

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