PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Countless people in Philadelphia walked by a snow-covered sedan with dark windows and a slew of parking tickets before police this week found the body of a young mother inside.
Nadia Malik, of Marple Township, had been missing for 11 days when her body was found lying face-down in the front seat Thursday, under a pile of clothes and a gym bag.
Police said the 22-year-old had a volatile relationship with her boyfriend. He was arrested at his parents' home near Cleveland and will be brought back to Pennsylvania on a parole violation.
Police said the couple had two young children, and a baby who died in 2012. Marple Township Police Chief Thomas Murray said county detectives are re-examining the baby's unexplained death.
An autopsy is underway to determine how Malik died.
