In my experience as a college professor who at one time hung around with students, there’s only two reasons for a college coed to leave a bar with a male that she just met moments ago:
I believe that drugs are a more common motivation than sex, but often the two go together.
This is a developing story, so there are many unanswered questions. Still, we feel compelled to republish the mantra: Avoid the groid. Around blacks, never relax.
Philadelphia Police announce charges have been filed against a man in connection with the death of a Temple University student that went missing Thursday.
In a press conference Saturday night authorities say that Joshua Hupperterz, 29 has been taken into custody and is facing multiple charges including the murder of 22-year-old Jenna Burleigh.
Burleigh had been missing since the early morning hours on Thursday. She was last seen around 2 a.m. in the area of Pub Webb, a bar at 16th Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue near Temple’s campus.
Police say Burleigh met Hupperterz, a former Temple University student, at the bar and were seen leaving together on video Thursday morning.
Police believe Burleigh was killed on 16th street. They say that Burleigh’s body was transported from 16th street to Jenkintown, and then eventually to Wayne County where officials would recover her body.
Officials say Burleigh body would be found at the lake front property of Hupperterz grandmother.
Authorities has executed a search warrant at an off-campus apartment in the 1700 block of North 16th Street Friday.
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross stressed at Saturday’s press conference that this investigation is still in its early stages as they are “still trying to determine a cause of death.”
Police say they are still investigating weather or not anyone else could be involved.
Ross says that this investigation is very complicated, but they just want to make sure they dot every ‘I’, and cross every ‘T.’
Earlier in the day Jenna’s father Ed Burleigh had this to say on Facebook following the news of his daughter’s death:
“Our Beautiful Angel Jenna is now in Heaven. Now I know for sure that you can have a “broken heart” RIP honey.”
Temple University’s President Richard M. Englert released a statement following Saturday’s press conference:
“The Temple University family was deeply saddened today to learn of the death of Jenna Burleigh, 22, of Harleysville, Pennsylvania, who transferred to Temple this week. Police on Saturday arrested Josh Hupperterz, 29, of Hawley, Pennsylvania, and expect to charge him in Jenna’s death. Hupperterz is a former Temple student. An investigation continues with police from Temple, the city of Philadelphia, and other departments. Jenna joined the Temple community just this week as a junior transfer student from Montgomery County Community College, majoring in film and media arts. Our deepest sympathies go out to Jenna’s family and her classmates, both here at Temple and at Montgomery County Community College. This is a tragic event, and anyone in the Temple community could be deeply touched by it. We want to remind you that Tuttleman Counseling Services is available on Main Campus, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by calling 215-204-7276.

As always, students should call Campus Safety Services at 215-204-1234 from off campus or 1-1234 from campus if they feel unsafe for any reason.”
The Daily Mail reports that there was $20,000 cash in Hupperterz’s home, along with bags of marijuana. The only question I can think of that’s left unanswered with that news is did he try to rape her?
Does a bear poo in the woods? The question answers itself.
