Police Frustrated that Community Won’t Help Find Missing Girl

Nadirah Ruffin’s abduction united a community hoping to bring her home. Now, investigators are hoping the public will band together again to catch whomever killed her.

"Please come forward," Atlantic County Prosecutor Ted Housel said Thursday afternoon during a news conference. "Now is the time to help solve this matter and find the people responsible for the kidnapping and murder of Nadirah Ruffin."

Ruffin, 19, of Egg Harbor Township, was at her cousin’s Atlantic City home at about 11:40 p.m. March 26 when three men and a woman wearing masks and armed with guns forced their way into the apartment, duct-taped the four other women there and took Ruffin at gunpoint.

That was the last time she was seen alive.

At about 10:30 Tuesday morning, a Philadelphia-area college rowing team was practicing on the Schuylkill River when they spotted a body stuck in brush at the bend just past Montgomery Avenue on the Martin Luther King Jr. Drive side, Housel said.

There was duct tape on the body’s head and part of the upper torso, and it had suffered a gunshot wound to the head. A handcuff dangled from the left ankle.

On Wednesday, a Philadelphia medical examiner confirmed the body was Ruffin’s.
