Around 12:26 p.m. on Thursday, August 18, 2022, a New Jersey Department of Transportation employee cutting grass along westbound Interstate 80 near milepost 16.6 reported finding human remains, according to official reports.
Quadree Burch, 27, of Newark, New Jersey, was reported missing on August 9, 2022, and was later recognized by detectives from the New Jersey State Police Major Crime North Section.
After five months of research, officers from the Serious Crime North Section have pinpointed the date of the murder to August 7, 2022.
Detectives were able to link the suspects to the victim and locate them near the crime scene through a variety of investigation techniques, so the police claim.
