CONSTANCE MURRAY left her home on a quiet, winding Northeast Philadelphia street about 9 p.m. Monday to go for a jog on the warm summer night.
Yesterday morning, about nine hours after leaving for her jog, Murray, 46, was found dead a few blocks from home, her body lying along a wooded stretch of Pennypack Park, tucked behind the small Holme Crispin Cemetery and a baseball field at Holme and Convent avenues. She was identified by a police source.
That's about all police knew last night about the death of the wife and mother, known as Connie among friends and relatives. Homicide Capt. James Clark confirmed last night that detectives in his unit took over the investigation, and called Murray's death suspicious but said police did not know the cause of death and had no leads in the case.
