Police say the body of a missing 22-year-old woman from suburban Philadelphia has been found inside a parked car near the city's 30th Street Station.

Authorities identified the woman as Nadia Malik, of Marple Township. She was last seen on February 9 and was the subject of a multistate search.

Police said the body was found just after 12pm Thursday in one of the front seats of her black Nissan.

According to investigators, Malik was slumped over with a pile of books on top of her.

Philadelphia Police Lt. John Walker told NBC10 the vehicle had been parked along 30th Street for nearly two weeks and had multiple parking tickets tucked under the windshield.

The 2007 Nissan Altima was covered with snow from the recent winter storms most of the time it was in the location where it was discovered today following a tip from a caller who had recognized the vehicle from media reports.

Police said the car's heavily tinted windows also made it more difficult to see the interior.....

Meter maid is paid to write tickets- not run plates

Well, surly the windshield wasn't tinted. You know, the big window in the front with the wipers that they use to hold down the parking tickets.

Then who is paid to match license plates with owners for collection purposes — especially after 7 tickets???

One of the front seats?

I understand what they mean but wouldn’t more info be drivers seat or passenger seat?

Slumped over, under a pile of books?

What, is she about 3’ tall?

Sorry for the young lady and her family but these Pulitzer Prize wannabees need some work.

Imagine someone explaining to the family and using that description as to how she was found.

The weeks worth of tickets for someone reported missing is also weird, realize there has been snow etc but should be some more vigilance, especially when reported the car there for 2 weeks.

When reading the article (I was looking for pic) it states her boyfriend is in custody in Ohio and her brother had been talking to the boyfriend and heard her scream in the background...

Surprised the ‘IF she was blonde’ crowd hasn’t chimed in though she appears to be Middle Eastern -has 2 kids with the BF so ‘back home’ her death would probably be her fault.

No one will be pating these tickets- owner is dead boyfriend is in jail.

My first comment was semi sarcastic- should have put a tag to it

“Covered with books” = LIE.

They simply want to avoid a suit and bad PR.

May I suggest that you go to the link and read the whole article. It answers some of your questions.

She was in the passenger seat, btw.

The article was written very poorly.

You have a front seat, a back seat and in some SUVs you have a 3rd row and some passenger vans a 4th row etc.

What is ‘ONE OF THE FRONT SEATS’? ‘HUNCHED OVER, UNDER A PILE OF BOOKS’?

The majority of articles any more are written like someone is using a- say- Tagalog to English translation and yes, a lot is lost in the translation.

Admittedly, if one doesn’t go ‘beyond the fold’ you are missing the most important parts of the story.

Which is ‘different’ because in todays ‘USA TODAY’ world all the gory and sensationalism is in the first paragraph and even in standard papers, they will make some outlandish remarks on the first page and (usually) buried on the next page, near the bottom the clarification of the ‘facts’ are put in the article.

uh... OK. What does the second bullet point, right after the title at the very beginning of the article say ?

The article was written very poorly.

Of that, you are absolutely correct.

I have noticed the same myself.

You think the journalists at the Daily Mail are bad, just wait until you see our new Zerocare doctors.

Well... he did say that they got into a fight and that he left her there in the car. I get the idea the police 'suspect' the same thing you do. Whether they can prove it is another matter.

One may think we are ‘arguing’ with each other, but, in actuality, we are on the same page.

The reason for my synopsis was to highlight the poorly written, ‘makes my eyes burn’, article.

When I ‘pointed out the obviousness of the ‘front seat remark’, MY statement was
‘I understand what they mean but wouldn’t more info be drivers seat or passenger seat?’,
to which you responded
‘Read the article and it answers your questions’ (something like that...)

And, as we agree, it appears to be the norm...NO fact checkers, NO editors...and NO ONE CARING enough to do a decent job that they are getting paid to do.

Then again, complain and more likely than not ‘people’ will set upon you for not taking the ‘abuse’ the writer is putting on the English language...(Not all that bad here but I had pointed out something similar in a local E-Paper - which in essence had made my eyeballs burn <:) and someone responded it didn’t matter about the spelling and/or composition (she did NOT use that word) and I wasn’t being ‘nice’ to the editor and reporter (I had singled them out) Woman must either be the mother of one of them or work for the paper...<: <:

I did NOT waste my time as I doubted she would have understood had I answered her etc...

Best part, no more written comments but did get 25 ‘likes’ and she got quite a few ‘dislikes’ (For what that may be worth).

Mind if I steal the term "Zerocare" from you? It's great!

A cop that I saw featured in one of the many crime documentaries you'll find on cable said that "when investigating a murder,before you look at the outlaws you look at the in-laws".
