Missing New Jersey Wife’s Body Discovered By Police In Maryland
PSA: If you kill your wife, you will be caught.
The body of a missing New Jersey mother of two has been recovered in Maryland after prosecutors said a GPS in her husband’s vehicle led authorities to her remains.
Erica Crippen, 26, who police believe was murdered by her husband on New Year’s Day, was found bound with an electrical cord and duct tape beneath a pile of branches and tree limbs Tuesday in a rural, Sykesville grove, prosecutors said.
The tragic discovery, about 30 miles northwest of Baltimore, followed authorities searching the surrounding area after a GPS in her husband’s truck revealed his unusual travel there in the days after she went missing.
That 28-year-old man, Kyle Crosby, was arrested and charged in January with his Mount Laurel wife’s murder. He had an infant with Crippen and shared custody of her 7-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
“Her family can now give Erica the proper burial that they have longed to provide,” Burlington County Prosecutor Robert Bernardi said Wednesday while announcing her body’s recovery.
Kyle’s ain’t s#!t momma also got to wear a pair of stainless steel bracelets for her part in concealing the gruesome murder.
Crosby’s 67-year-old mother, Jo Crosby, was also arrested Monday and charged with helping conceal her son’s crime after allegedly deleting incriminating evidence on her cellphone.
She was released after posting 10% of $12,500 bail.
The apple clearly didn’t fall far from the tree.
