    The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office said that Muriah Ashley Huff, 18, of Cinnaminson, and her boyfriend, Michael Hawkins, 23, of Mount Holly, were found buried in the yard of a rowhouse on Berkley Street near Broadway.

    Huff, a senior cosmetology student at the Burlington County Institute of Technology, in Westampton, suffered blunt force trauma and was strangled. Hawkins also suffered blunt force trauma and was shot several times.

    Jason Laughlin, a spokesman for the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, would not say why the couple was at the Camden rowhouse.

    “We’re energetically pursuing leads in this case,” said Laughlin. “We have two victims who apparently suffered before they were wrongly killed.”

    No arrests have been made and no  one answered the door at the red rowhouse. Laughlin said that the bodies were buried sometime on Feb. 23, and that investigators believe that Huff and Hawkins were killed shortly before. Camden police received a tip and found the bodies.

    The home’s owner, Yehuda Klein, of Brooklyn, said that he didn’t know the names of his tenants on Berkley Street but that they were in the federal subsidized-housing program formerly known as Section 8.

    Klein said he had received a letter from Camden police in the past about drug dealing in the back yard of the home. A man who answered the phone at Four Corners Management, the company that manages the property for Klein, declined to comment.

    Why do ‘jews’ think that everyone is just out to get them? This is not the blood libel era.. We live in times where animals who masquerade (Purim for them all year) as ‘jews’ are to blame (Rubashkin, Wexler, 33 concert ban ‘rabbis’…)

    The owner is not responsible; it is just coincidence that these behemas rented from him on Section 8.

    We have what looks like a murder. Nobody said who is to blame. If you start defending the owner it sounds you are assuming he is guilty. Why are you assuming he will be charged? Do you you know something we should know?

    why do some believe in conspiracy theories?

    Ab simple story 2 bodies found in a house that was owned by another person. Of course the police and media will ask the owner if he knows anything about the tenants

    Pretty soon the EPA will begin to regulate what’s going on in all of our backyards. Let’s face it – all illegal activity happens there. When u go out for a smoke behind your wife’s back – where do u go? I don’t want to start listing all the sins that happen in the backyards, but suffice it to say that pretty soon we won’t be able to plant our own tomatoes there anymore.

    Weird and weirder. Doesn’t anyone read the article before they comment? The owner wasn’t even managing the property himself – it was done through an agency. The police have no interest in him except to find out who was living in the house. There had been drug dealing there in the past but it was not connected with the owner.

    There is no smear, no anti-Semitism, nothing but a routine police investigation which involves a Jewish property owner at second- or third-hand.
