Hidden inside a wall?

How terrible!

Even though it's been 5 days, since she disappeared, they still need more time to identify her. What happened to her must have been horrendous. A 90lb. 4'11 girl wouldn't require much to over come. This is so sad. Finding her on her wedding day.

Makes me want to sit down and cry for her, her fiance and their families. May God rest her soul and be with and comfort her family and friends.

They had videos showing her entering the building, but not leaving. Such a tragedy. She was so excited about marrying “her best friend.” God be with him and her family.

All day long I was thinking about her on and off.

I live near NYC and it was a BEAUTFUL DAY.

Light breeze. Not a cloud in the sky. It was a picture perfect day for her outdoor wedding that had been canceled. What a sad day for the families and friends.

This explains why they have security camera video of her entering the building but none of her leaving.

Your feelings about this tragedy are the same for me.

I am also feeling concern for the civility we should enjoy in this nation. We have unrestrained barbarians loose in this country. I only wonder if this behavior is getting more prevalent and to what extent. Almost every week we hear about a disappearance and a body found. Everywhere you go there are pictures of people missing posted on shop windows. Am I noticing an onslaught on society?

The savage is crawling out of the most civilized culture in history to hunt the vulnerable as prey.

"Hidden inside a wall?

I think they are referring to the vertical crawlspace that runs between floors. That's where most power and data cable is usually fished through; I believe they call it a wiring trunk. Probably no larger than 4' by 4' width by depth, constructed of concrete blocks and runs the entire height of the building.

The police must have a picture of the scumbag killer with 75 cameras in a five story building. Whoever he is I hope he gets what he truly deserves. He should suffer a great deal. Only a filthy coward would harm innocent women and children.

Joe Avery, a New Haven police spokesman, said the body “was found behind the wall in something called a chase, which is a space that carries utilities from one floor to another.”

At the news conference Sunday night, Chief Reichard declined to supply more details. “We have an ongoing homicide case,” he said, “so we cannot tell you what we have, where we found anything or what it is.”

Irony-—she wrote an article on the paper about how unsafe the campus is.

” Police discovered the body in the basement Sunday afternoon, said Yale University President Richard Levin in a statement to the campus community.

Police plan to work through the night to remove the unidentified body, which is still in the wall, police spokesman Joe Avery told CNN.”

The body was reportedly found at the basement level, not truly between walls, but in a vertical “chase” where cables , conduits, ducts, pipes, etc rise vertically to service higher floors.

Reichard revealed that a university student has failed a lie-detector test when questioned about the missing young woman but refused to provide details, including whether he was the same young man who had been led from the building for questioning early Saturday.

In the design and construction professions, these are called pipe chases. Electrical and plumbing chases are either separated by distance or demising walls. Rooms are called electrical closet or maintenance/plumbing closets. Many chases are actually less than 2’ across while 2’ and beyond in depth (or length) depending on the number of pipes arrayed. Some municipalities, for instance, require separate standpipes for the fire hose and sprinkler systems as well as separate vent stacks and sanitary sewer lines. The number of hose bibs, sprinkler heads, and plumbing fixtures, as well as pressure, determine the diameter of the pipes.

A single pipe chase could be 2’ wall to wall and 8’ to 10’ deep, making it ideal to hide things as long as someone has a key or tool to access the chase. Metal access panels can often be opened with a flat scewdriver because their locks are often pretty flimsy. Access panels made of wallboard are cheaper but don’t hold up well over time; they’re usually attached with drywall screws.

The sad plight of this young couple and the couple in Ralieigh certainly gives one pause. To read about so much bright promise lost certainly makes me thankful for so many little things.

Yes, I had posted on another thread about her. She was such a tiny girl, 4’11” and only 90lbs.
