Maybe, but my point is that the criminal here was sloppy since he/she did not even make the minimum effort to cover tracks other than to run away.

Every story I read said the father contacted his police chief neighbor at 7pm. I think she was found at 11pm but I'd have to confirm that. What source says the police weren't called until 11?

"When she didn't return, her dad called the police just after 5 p.m., and they pinged her phone. It showed she was in the brush near the park's jogging path. Her dad was the first one to discover her body 15 feet from the jogging trail shortly before 11 p.m., Boyce said. "

pinged her phone...I assume the police started to proceed sometime after 5pm

I can't remember at the moment..anyway, one person kept alluding that her and her father had a very very "close" relationship. And the day he didn't go jogging with her, she ends up dead. AND he found the body.

Probably hogwash, but something to think about.
While I'm sure the police have eliminated the father as a suspect, the story doesn't add up that he contacts the police when his world-traveling daughter is an hour late from a jog and he's the one who finds her, at night with searchlights, in tall grass. Just look at where she was found and imagine locating her body here at night.



Maybe whoever did this had some vendetta against the family and called the father after she was killed. That's a wild guess but I get a Sopranos vibe from some of the statements from the family.

The father knows the area & knows her typical running route. Why is it surprising he finds her after pinging the estimated location of her.


Yes the father is neighbors with the police. Its surprising they use resources to move this quick. If it was strictly by the books, a person isn't missing until 24 hours.

Ehh could be a couple of things. Whoever did it may have not planned to kill her and was surprised by how much of a fight she put up. The suspect might have been in shellshock and just ran out of there instead of thinking of what to do to dispose of evidence.

It could also be that they were careless because they know they are not in DNA bank and felt that they could get away with it.

I'm curious as to the reason this is a "huge story"? What makes her death significant? I didn't read the article.

It's a mix of things. One she was very attractive, two the family has some nypd/fdny connections. three people like unsolved mysteries.

If so, why would the father not tell THIS to the police that he got a call?

She was 2 hours late from the jog, she left at 5:00, the father called the police at 7:00. Two hours is a long time for a jog in the scary weeds!

I do not know why but I have the feeling that this woman was meeting somebody in the weeds, who then became her killer. And the father maybe knew about it, but he does not know whom she met. I think the parents know more than they want to admit. Also, the mother's speech has a somewhat strange vibe, for me.

That's my take.
