Man charged with murder after body of missing woman found in Philadelphia

Authorities have charged a man with murder after police found the body of a missing Delaware County woman wrapped in a garbage bag and dumped in a vacant lot Tuesday night in Germantown.

Kareem Malik Davis-Duppins has been charged with first-degree murder, abuse of corpse and related charges in the death of 25-year-old Sabrina Dubose. 

Police found Dubose's body on the 5700 block of Musgrave Street around 6 p.m. after acting on a tip received by Haverford Township police. 

“We were able to track the whereabouts, identity a suspect, Mr. Duppins was taken into custody yesterday and admitted to his role in the killing and hiding of Sabrina's body then moving that body, taking that body to the Germantown section of Philadelphia," Upper Darby Police Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt said at a Wednesday press conference.

Dubose was reported missing on May 22 after she left her house in Ardmore and was believed to be headed to Philadelphia via an Upper Darby SEPTA station.

A motive in the murder has not been released, but investigators say the two met on public transportation in May.

“They met casually on May 22nd, somehow they met on public transportation and they had an interaction from there, a social interaction that turned deadly," Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer said.
