It’s something no mother should have to endure. Her daughter disappears for months only to be found dead.

The body of 24-year-old Marisha Cheong washed up on a beach in Breezy Point, Queens Saturday morning ending what had been an intense search for the woman who had been missing since mid December. Cops say her body had experienced trauma and her hands were tied.

All along investigators thought she did not disappear on her own.  Cheong who lived with her boyfriend in Jamaica, Queens was last seen on December 19th.

She was supposed to meet him at a subway stop but never showed up.  In a strange twist friends and her mother received text messages from her phone the day after she disappeared but they say the messages were written with language that appeared different than the missing woman’s normal type of text.

Her boyfriend has denied having any involvement in her disappearance but published reports now say he has been taken into police custody.  The N.Y.P.D. has not confirmed the man is in custody.

The medical examiner  will determine the exact cause of death.  The investigation is continuing.

We had a lot of classes together. Both in 729. Mr Debonis Homeroom Class. Its a shame what happened to her. I will see her in Paradise. God will execute his Judgement on her assailant. This I am Confident of. 2 sweet + 2 be = 4 gotten. I Will never forget her.
