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.

Police need to start making people take the tinting off. The locals in my state use the tinting to hide their children loose in the cars, no car seats, phone use and other illegal acts.

It is illegal in some states to have very dark tinted windows on a car, especially the front side windows. That does not stop people from having it done to their cars.

shoddy police work, or , non communication between police departments. Why wasn't her car part of the missing persons investigation from the onset? Why wouldn't her license plate be on an APB? This woman's family has been frantic for over a week and we're just now discovering her car after x amount of tickets?

It breaks my heart to know that she leaves behind a 3 year old son and 2 month old daughter.

I hope they find out what happened to this woman, and if there was foul play, hope that person is caught. Condolences to the family

I'm pretty sure it won't come out as a suicide...how can a person cover themselves up with clothing and enough books to smother to death?

ITS good to know
if you are reported MISSING in Pennsylvania
and your family gives the police all the info on you and your CAR
that the cops will put a ticket on your car
over and over
with your license plate ON THE TICKET
or even to LOOK INSIDE IT!

Where did the cops put all those parking tickets if the car was covered in snow? Good choice of priorities.

And of course, the city will still want all those parking tickets paid. Probably charging her next-of-kin for them.

Stop it .What I want to know is was the information on the car given to the police when she was reported missing. Was the car run through NCIC-PCIC ?
It sounds that the body wasn't able to be seen because of snow on the car plus she was under books and clothing.

"city's main train station"

Someone dropped the ball on this one. If that car was parked there for 10 days, that should have automatically triggered their homeland defense dept to investigate.
