Police say Hupperterz was taken into custody Saturday in Paupack Township in northeastern Pennsylvania and charged with several crimes Sunday.

And Temple University says all students should know they're not alone. Now, friends remember her as a positive and caring person who believed in helping others, her social media posts asking for donations for Philadelphia's homeless and advocating for equality during a local women's march in January.

Investigators said they do not believe Hupperterz and Burleigh had a prior relationship and the killing does not appear to be premeditated.

Police say a body presumed to be Burleigh's was found on lakefront property there owned by Hupperterz's grandmother. Burleigh's body was discovered at his grandmother's Wayne County home more than 100 miles away.

"She spent a lot of time combating racism and sexism, and she very much defended the rights for the LGBTQIA plus community", Madaus said. Abdulhawa said she searched online for any evidence that he had played on the Temple team, and suspected it was a lie.

Burleigh spent the last two years at Montgomery County Community College and began her first semester at Temple earlier in the week.

Hupperterz was arrested by police at his grandma's home, as indicated by the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Temple University president Richard M. Englert said in a statement the community was "deeply saddened" to learn of Burleigh's death. Burleigh, 22, whose father reported her missing Thursday, died from the "combined effects of blunt trauma and strangulation", Wayne County Coroner Edward R. Howell said in an autopsy report released Sunday.

Temple is offering on-campus counseling 8:30 a.m.to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Tuttleman Counseling Services.

"Instances like this, they really hit home", Ross said.
