Philadelphia woman missing since December found dead in Poconos

23 April 2018

The Monroe County Coroner's Office identified the body discovered in Tunkhannock Township Friday as Nicole Murray and has ruled her death suspicious, WNEP is reporting.

Nicole Murray had been reported missing to Philadelphia police late last December and to Pocono Mountain Regional police on January 9, Pocono Mountain Regional police Chief Chris Wagner said Saturday.

Those same friends and family started a Facebook page to keep tabs on the investigation. On Jan. 7, "Bob" allegedly used Murray's cell phone to call her mother and tell her Nicole had left the Poconos on foot.

Investigators did not immediately release who found the body.

The state police Forensic Unit and the Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department are investigating the incident, Yanac said. "We want to thank everyone for all your kind words and prayers during these hard last few months". Police said the mobile home was unoccupied.

"Though we only held Nicole in our arms for a short while, we will hold [her] in our hearts forever".

Murray would have turned 25 next weekend.
