Philadelphia police said he had confessed to "elements of the crime".

By late Saturday afternoon, the search for Burleigh ended tragically when her body was found at the grandmother's house, 150 miles north of Philadelphia.

Police interviewed his roommate at a home in the 1700 block of North 16th Street, where police allegedly found evidence connected with Burleigh's disappearance, as well as drugs. She said she did not know who the woman was, but heard screams and ran outside to see what was going on. He was accused of breaking into a home in 2013 to steal electronics, credit cards and beer, Philly.com reported.

"She spent a lot of time combating racism and sexism, and she very much defended the rights for the LGBTQIA plus community", Madaus said.

Burleigh's dad, Ed Burleigh, posted a sad message on his Facebook page on Saturday, saying: "Our Beautiful Angel Jenna is now in Heaven".

Temple University president Richard M. Englert said in a statement the community was "deeply saddened" to learn of Burleigh's death. "Now I know for sure that you can have a "broken heart" RIP honey".
