Investigating officers found Jennifer Brown’s car parked outside her residence in Stratford Court. They also discovered her purse, keys, wallet, and work cell phone from her house. Her friend, Antonio Watts-Richardson told NBC10 that Jennifer was with him on Tuesday and that her son, Noah, was at his place for a sleepover.
“I put Noah on the bus the next day.”
Jennifer was scheduled to pick up her son from the bus stop, however, she went missing before that.
Richardson further mentioned that Jennifer was dealing with stress in her personal as well as professional life. He also stated that he was supposed to open a restaurant along with 43-old-old Jennifer Brown.
He spoke to the news outlet and said:
“I have nothing to do with anything. Just because I’m the last person to see her, that does not mean anything.”
“Jennifer would never ever just disappear, she would never abandon her son,” said Jennifer Brown’s friend
When Jennifer went missing, her friend Tiffany Barron told NBC Philadelphia that the victim wasn’t someone who would leave her son unattended.
“She is a doting, I call her, helicopter mom. She loves her son. She would never leave her son. It's literally like we're living in a movie that we watch on TV, it's so surreal and unbelievable.”
Steele described Jennifer as a “devoted mother of an 8-year-old boy.”
Jennifer’s neighbor Billy Jo Salkowski said:
“I have been praying for her. My daughter’s family has been praying for her. I am very religious, and I hope to God she’ll be at peace.”
No arrests have been made yet and the officers have also not revealed the victim's cause of death. Prosecutors have not shared whether they have identified a suspect in the case either. Once Jennifer’s body was found, it had to be transferred to the coroner’s office for an autopsy to be performed.
