Missing Pennsylvania Woman Found Dead In Her Car

Missing Pennsylvania Woman Found Dead In Her Car

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- An autopsy was scheduled Friday on the body of a missing young mother found inside a car that was parked near Philadelphia's main train station and had a number of parking tickets on the window.

The body of Nadia Malik, 22, of suburban Marple Township, in Delaware County, was found Thursday in one of the front seats of the car parked near 30th Street Station. She had been the subject of a multistate search since she was last seen on Feb. 9.

Malik's body showed no visible signs of trauma and was fully clothed, police said.

Police said the car was first ticketed on Feb. 10 a few blocks from the train station, and the car was towed to a spot behind the station on Valentine's Day because it was blocking snow removal. It was ticketed there a number of other times.

Police Lt. John Walker said it would have been difficult for officers issuing the parking tickets to see inside the car.

"If you look at the car, it's tinted heavily on the back and side windows, and the windshield would have been covered with snow," he said.

In addition, the passenger seat containing the body was completely reclined and the woman's head was covered with a black duffel bag, police said.

Someone outside the car "couldn't tell there was a body under the bag until you opened the car and grabbed the bag," Walker said.

Investigators say they want to question Malik's boyfriend, with whom she has two young children. He was arrested in Solon, Ohio, on a probation violation and is awaiting extradition but hasn't been charged in the case.

I just can not believe that none of the officials ran the plates as tickets piled up on the car. Should not that be standard procedure signal red flags???

As Americans we should expect more especially in our major cities. No excuses!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in order to tow a car, do you not have to OPEN the door, put it in neutral and let off the parking brake? I've never had my cars towed but have seen this procedure done several times.

This car is a front wheel drive ,which means that you can easily tow it with the front wheels up.

Ticket Officers are not real cops in Philly.

hobbs74, You nailed it! Being a former PO, that was my first thought. If the windshield, was covered with snow, where did they put the tickets? Under the snow? Probably. And......, if they took the time to clear off the snow, they just.............., might have seen something. But you have to be able to think. And they didn't! Now, the authorities play C.Y.A.!

Not only in Philadelphia. I reported my car stolen the same day it was, in Detroit. i was notified by mail after 3 weeks with 10 parking tickets on the windshileld (collection for fines) . It was in the summer so there was no excuse for the metermaids to have missed it. It was towed to a Police Parking lot quite far from the place it was stolen from. BTW, my car was found just stone throw away from the police station and was not tinted.

It's unbelievable parking tickets were placed on the window day after day and not one person wondered if the car might have anything to do with the woman who had gone missing. Somebody could've saved that family days of anguish if only they'd been curious enough to run the plates.

they didn't want to run the plates and wanted to keep the revenue coming in
