Sunday, police identified the body of Jenna Lord in Camden, New Jersey; Lord was a mother who lived in Collingdale, Pennsylvania and had been missing since July 5. Family members and friends were unsatisfied with what the police had done on Lord’s case and began their own search, and they found her body in a vacant parking lot just two hours after the search began.
Lord, 23, was last seen July 5 at a train station in Camden waiting for a train to Pennsylvania. She had been to a party the night before with friends. Lord has been described as a troubled young woman who had recently began to turn her life around.
Lord’s mother told HLN that her cell phone died over the weekend, and she borrowed a man’s phone at the train station to call her mother while she was waiting for a train. Her mother missed the phone call, but called the man’s cell phone back later that day. The man told her that Jenna “looked a little scared,” and said that he had given her some money for her train ticket and he was at the train station with her until his train arrived.
“His train came a minute before hers, and he got on his train and I guess he figured she would get on her train, but she never got home,” Caruso, Jenna’s mother said.
Caruso saw surveillance video that showed her daughter walking around the train station, while two men followed closely behind her.
“It looked like they were saying something to her,” Caruso said of the tape. “She looked back and then she just kept walking, and that’s the end [of the tape].”
