The death of a 21-year-old Gwynedd-Mercy College nursing student was ruled a homicide by police.
Elaine Goldberg’s partially-clothed body was found with ligature marks around the neck at approximately 3 p.m. Wednesday in a vacant lot on the 2800-block of Ruth Street in Kensington.
An autopsy report confirms that the cause of death was strangulation.
“Still in shock. Still don’t know what to say. I guess all I can say is that I will miss you and remember you forever,” wrote Francis Ruff.
Gwynedd Mercy also released the following statement about Goldberg’s death:
“The College community sadly mourns the loss of nursing student Elaine Goldberg, who died yesterday. Please hold her family in your prayers, especially her brother Stephen, a GMC freshman.”
Police have no suspects and continue to search for clues.
