PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The brother of 22-year-old Nadia Malik, speaking out for the first time, says he believes the mother of three, who disappeared February 9th and whose body was found 11 days later in a car near 30th Street Station, was a victim of foul play.
An autopsy did not reveal indications of foul play, with results from toxicology tests pending.
However, Malik says his sister’s body was found covered with books and clothing, indicating someone was inside the car with her.
“Her entire body was covered with books, there was a duffle bag placed over her head,” her brother Khaled Malik said.
The father of Nadia Malik’s three children, Bhupinder Singh, was arrested in Ohio, three days after she disappeared, and held on probation violations.
He is not charged in connection with her death. Singh’s attorney did not return calls requesting comment.
Singh remains behind bars here following his extradition about a hearing on the probation violations.
“It’s obviously a very big tragedy, but there’s so many unanswered questions,” Nadia’s brother said.
Meanwhile, it’s expected to be a least a month before the toxicology tests provide potentially new information about Nadia’s death.
