    http://6abc.com/news/woman-found-murdered-in-delco-apartment-bathtub-idd/12697Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said in a news conference on Thursday. Investigators strongly believe the killing was committed by someone Benson knew. There was no sign of forced entry, and the killer had a key to lock the door on the way out. A source tells Action News that a person of interest is being questioned in the murder, but they are not yet ready to make an arrest. Residents say the victim recently moved into the complex. I think the killer lives in the same complex and is familiar with all the apts. Probably wrong. JMO.

    Can a mod update this with the victim's name? Markia Benson.

    I tried to find a FB page for Markia, but there doesn't appear to be one.

    Bumping for Markia. I'm disappointed at how this case has completely disappeared from MSM.

    I hope there's an update on this soon. I'm hoping they've been quiet on it as they get closer to an arrest, but who knows. The details that have been released are disturbing.

    “The homicide scene was indicative of somebody who was really, really angry,” Chitwood said. “This was personal. We believe it was a crime of passion and hatred. There were [derogatory] messages written on the wall.”


    The superintendent declined to divulge the specific words.

    [...]

    “It was a vicious fight,” Chitwood said. “There was blood on the walls and feces on the floor. He beat her and killed her and dragged her into the bathroom. It looks like she fought for her life and lost."


    He continued, “This was a brutal, sadistic killing because of the messages, the body and the crime scene. It’s tragic.”

    "We believe that she knew the killer," Chitwood said. "There's no sign of forced entry. There is a lot of evidence that we've collected from inside the apartment that I can't get into right now. It was a brutal, sadistic, heinous crime that was committed upon her."

    [...]

    "The apartment was in disarray," Chitwood said. "It looks like she was in a struggle."

    Someone knows something about this woman's heinous murder.

    Has there been any updates on this case? I don't live far from where this happened and I've heard nothing. This woman's death didn't seem to stay in the news that long. It's not huge town this should be a big deal.

    Did anyone get to see her FB page? I just found this thread and was curious if she had any ex boyfriends.
