"Two crime scenes were processed", Philadelphia police Capt. John Ryan said at a news conference Saturday, referring to Hupperterz's apartment near Pub Webb and a residence in Jenkintown, Pa., about 10 miles north of Philadelphia.
And Temple University says all students should know they're not alone. He told them he didn't remember who he left with because he "had been so drunk".
A body confirmed to be Bureligh's was found Sunday on township property belonging to Hupperterz's grandmother.
They found Burleigh's corpse along with Huppereterz at his grandmother's home in Wayne County over the weekend, NBC Philadelphia reports.
State police at Honesdale assisted Philadelphia police and the FBI with the current investigation.
The next day, Edward Burleigh said he hadn't heard from his daughter, which was unusual, so he drove to the university to see if she was there. Abdulhawa said she searched online for any evidence that he had played on the Temple team, and suspected it was a lie.
A Times-Tribune story reported that Hupperterz, who was 25 at the time, broke into a Taylor Avenue home in Scranton in July 2013 and tried to steal a half keg of beer from a shower stall, among other items.
"She was an exurberant person", said Danielle Halteman.
Temple University officials released a statement Saturday expressing sympathy to Burleigh's family. She was majoring in film and media arts, Temple spokesman Ray Betzner said.
"There is a lot of sadness and mourning over the entire campus for her loss", said Sarah Madaus, the student government communications director.
Temple is offering on-campus counseling 8:30 a.m.to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Tuttleman Counseling Services. "Particularly thinking about the heartache and grief that those parents must be going through right now".
Her father, Ed Burleigh, said in a message on Facebook: "Our Beautiful Angel Jenna is now in Heaven".
