NORTHEAST PHILADELPHIA - Police are investigating after they say a woman's body was discovered wrapped in plastic inside a trash can in Frankford.
Avy Snipes says her daughter Kioma Dielh was found murdered just after 6 a.m. Wednesday. Her body was discovered wrapped in plastic and stuffed in a garbage bin the 4600 block of Leiper Street. A trash company worker made the grim discovery.
The victim is known as "Kiki" and has been missing since the weekend, which her family says was highly unusual. They've been frantically searching for her never imagining in a million years she'd be found dead. Her sister identified the body Wednesday morning.
Kiki is the mother of four children, a 7-year-old daughter, twin 14-year-old sons, her oldest is 19-year old Kiani who is taking her mother's brutal murder especially hard.
"Nobody deserved to be found like that and she suffered and it just bothered me cuz it wasn't peaceful like my mom deserved," she said.
Friends and family say everyone knew and loved Kiki that's why it makes no sense. They say whoever did this was an animal and they won't rest until her killer is found and brought to justice.
"I just miss my mom. I just saw her for Mother's Day. Her birthday is coming up in two weeks. She would have been 37. All she talked about was her birthday," Kiani said.
