Car that received parking tickets had a dead woman inside

On Thursday, the body of a missing Broomall woman who has been missing for almost two weeks was found in the passenger seat of a car which had multiple parking tickets on it.

The authorities have been looking for the car every since Nadia was seen driving it at an Upper Darby intersection. That same car was ticketed on Feb. 9 by the Philadelphia Parking Authority as it sat illegally parked along 30th Street near Market. Over the course of 10 days, the car received a total of seven parking tickets, reported My Fox Philly news.

If you have ever seen the reality television show "Parking Wars" you are familiar with the Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA). They have several levels of parking enforcement and one of them is handled by the officers who patrol by walking a specific area and writing up tickets for parking violations.

In the show you will see the PPA officers getting the license plate number before writing a ticket. You can't help but wonder why the woman who is believed to be Nadia Malik, 22, was not seen in the front seat of the car where she was found slumped over by a passerby who called the police on Thursday.

Philadelphia Police Lt. John Walker told NBC Philadelphia that there was a book bag with stuff dumped out on top of her and the car had been covered with snow.

Fortunately the citation helped the Philadelphia Police Department to determine that Nadia and the car had been parked in that same spot for almost two weeks.

"We can go back to that time that we know the car clearly was parked here illegally and ticketed," said Lt. John Walker.

Although the police do not know for sure if Nadia has been in the car the whole time, it is more than likely.

Nadia, who had previously lived in Lansdowne, PA was reported missing by her family who said they last talked to her by phone. She said at the time she was with her boyfriend, Bhupinder Singh, who was refusing to let her leave.

Currently, Singh is in jail for probation violations in Ohio after he was questioned in Nadia's disappearance. Although they were seen together leading up to the time of her disappearance, a Greyhound bus ticket stub supports his story that he left Nadia in Pennsylvania and took a bus to Ohio.
