    I am posting this link to illustrate the area near where this hotel is/was located. This murder happened a block or 2 away back in 2003. If she really was walking around in the area in the early AM, she was certainly in some danger.

    That is absolutely tragic, poor guy, working hard at school and work and he gets mowed down for nothing.
    Wonder if it is people hanging out in apt buildings watching people go by, then- when they see somebody nice and "respectable" looking, attack - like animals?
    imo, speculation.

    They found those killers for the case of the guy shot a year earlier. No link to this case. That poor guy was just buying a six pack on a Saturday night.

    There are some good blogs on this case, if you google it.

    I can't get into the speculation (against TOS), but there was 1 or 2 bars in the area, one across from the hospital, and one of those bars (Wallios, closed now) where the guy in my link was killed. She could have met a person at a bar, or been stalked at the hotel. Still, I cringe at the thought of her walking alone.

    Much of what I read was blogs, not MSM. I could add some facts, but I will not. (TOS)


    How does a clerk not know who is lurking in their hotel, if that happened?

    This is a reach, but when I read this case today and saw it on the news, I thought of Joy Hayward. Chester is not too far from Yeadon, about a 15 minute ride. I am not sure when this guy was arrested for his 2002 transgressions. Could this be one of those "other cases?" It probably isn't, but why not take a look?

    "DNA evidence linked Allen to Gibson's murder and other cases, said prosecutors. Gibson has previously pleaded guilty to a slew of charges in a 2002 attempted murder. He was released in 2015, said Whelan."

    One description of a suspect to keep in mind, might be this one.

    Search for clues ongoing in slaying of Maryland woman

    Investigators believe there may be a link between Hayward's homicide and the rape of a 44-year-old Darby woman at nearby Deshong Park four months later. The physical descriptions of both men are "significantly similar," authorities have said.


    It was about 7 a.m. on June 22, when the Darby woman, waiting for a bus at Ninth and Upland streets, first spotted the suspect. He rode past her on a bicycle several times, causing her to become suspicious.

    The man got off of his bicycle and approached the woman. Speaking with a Spanish or Jamaican accent, he told her he had a gun. He ordered the woman to walk westward on Ninth Street toward Deshong Park, forced her into a heavily wooded area behind the museum and raped her, according to investigators. He fled when several people walked by.


    The rape victim described her attacker as a black man, between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall. He has several gold teeth in the upper portion of his mouth, a dark complexion, slanted eyes and a light mustache and facial hair.


    The victim told police her attacker appeared to be a drug user.


    Authorities have noted that the composite of the rape suspect is nearly identical to that of the man seen with Hayward the night she was murdered.

    So, there was a camera. Why can't they use this to get a description of who they are looking for?

    And again, she checked in at 1:30 AM. I would think she did not know the area or she would never have picked that hotel. There were much better choices not too far away. Where is she going at 1:30 AM in the morning??? To get something to eat? Around there? Where would you even go around there at that time? That's a dangerous area. Not much is open.
    Could she have gotten drugs in one of the bars you mentioned in another post? I wonder what the autopsy showed. She must have been upset because of the fight with her bf. Maybe decided to get high.

    Almost 13 years on and no progress in this murder. Unbelievable. I would assume they test all convicted rapists and murderers against unknown DNA collected at crime scenes. But do they really do that?

    There was a sketch mentioned in the article about the woman who was raped. Has this sketch been published?
