Body pulled from Schuylkill is that of missing Atlantic City mother

    The body pulled Tuesday from the Schuylkill River has been identified as that of 19-year-old Nardirah Ruffin. The Egg Harbor Township woman was abducted March 26.
    A bicyclist spotted the body Tuesday in Fairmount Park, and dental records confirm it’s the young mother, reports the Associated Press. Ruffin was abducted last month when four men entered her friend’s home, bound everyone with duct tape and fled with Ruffin, the mother of a 4-year-old son.

    Ruffin died of a gunshot wound, and her case is considered a homicide. The FBI is offering a $20,000 reward.
