The family of a missing Delaware County, Pa. woman found her body on Sunday while searching the streets of Camden, NJ, near where she disappeared. The discovery is a tragic end to two weeks of searching.
KYW’s Pat Loeb reports that Jenna Lord, 23, disappeared from a Camden train station while trying to get home the morning after Fourth of July (see related story). Family members searched for her themselves every day.
Her cousin, Jillian Monahan, says about 50 people gathered for the final search and within two hours found her decomposing body in a vacant lot:
“We’re just glad that our family went out there and we finally found her and now we can put her to rest because she deserves to be at peace.”
Monahan says family members recognized Lord’s clothes, jewelry, and manicure but Camden County prosecutor spokesman Jason Laughlin says that office was waiting for an official identification:
“At this point, we’re going to be looking for an autopsy to determine the identity of the person and the cause of death.”
That official identification came Monday morning.
