Hupperterz has confessed to elements of the crime, police said.

The suspoect, who is a former student at high-ranking Temple - where Burleigh was enrolled - was also charged him with drugs offences after finding large quantities of marijuana and $20,000 (£15,500) in cash.

Huppereterz is reported to have told detectives that he was so drunk on the night in question that he did not remember who he left the bar with.

Later that day, Burleigh's father reported his daughter missing, launching a missing-persons investigation by local and campus police. A body presumed to be Burleigh's was found on a relative's property.

State police at Honesdale assisted Philadelphia police and the FBI with the current investigation. She said she did not know who the woman was, but heard screams and ran outside to see what was going on.

In 2013, he was charged with burglary and other offences after allegedly stealing electronics, laundry detergent and a keg of beer from a home in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Abdulhawa said she searched online for any evidence that he had played on the Temple team, and suspected it was a lie.
