    Still no record of Marsha being found/located - BUT I did notice an obituary with the same name in Philly. Wonder if it could be her?

    Lived in this general area for most of the last decade (and google mapped to confirm) but the fact that the funeral home is .1 miles from where she was last seen would seem to support your hypothesis. Pretty big city for that to be a coincidence.

    Now I wonder if I've seen this woman or interacted with her before. Not that this matters really but bc I'm reacting to this personally and wondering what happened to her - there seems to be a fair number of homes in the area that house people with mental illnesses and it seems common for these folks to also spend a lot of time outside. It stands out probably at least partly bc this is right on the edge of an area that has been quickly gentrified with the help of UPenn over the last 10-15 years. Just one of those things that's always given me a tinge of sadness but that I've somewhat numbed myself to in order to go about day to day life. Okay well enough of that... I'm going to check around and see if I can find anything that would confirm whether or not these are the same women.

    I reached out to a local SW detective via twitter and he confirmed that she was found deceased on 4/20/15.

    Not sure if this really counts as confirmation for websleuths but here is the link:
