Jennifer Brown, a Pennsylvania mother who has been missing for several weeks, has been found dead, Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele announced during a press conference.
“Unfortunately, I have to announce that we have found Jennifer Brown, who we have been looking for and she is dead,” Steele said. “She was a mother who was last seen on Tuesday, Jan. 3, at her home in Limerick.”
According to reports from local media outlet ABC6, crime scene investigators searched the area behind an industrial facility in Royersford Wednesday afternoon in connection with the case.
She was found partially buried in a shallow grave, according to 10Philadelphia.
The mother was reported missing after she never showed up to retrieve her son from the bus stop on the afternoon on Jan. 4. The family of Brown offered a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the location of the mother of one.
“Friends and family had not heard from her since that day,” Steele said. “As I said, she was a devoted mother of an 8-year-old boy and by all accounts she would have never left him unattended and unsupervised.”
Steele noted that her vehicle and personal belongings with the exception of her cellular phone were found inside of Brown’s home.
“I can’t tell you how many people have worked through this and have helped in this case to try to locate her and we hoped and prayed that she would be safe,” said the district attorney. “And she is not, unfortunately she was located out in Royersford.”
According to the district attorney, they were able to “confirm” that it was Brown.
