Body Identified as Marine, Janice Rubendall

March 5, 2012

May you rest in peace Janice, you will not be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

The coroner said the Marine’s tattoos helped to make a preliminary identification of her remains. “We compared the tattoos with the tattoos described to us (by the family),” he said.

The body was recovered from the riverbank along West Indian Lane in West Norriton Sunday afternoon. Rubendall, of Wayne Avenue in Lower Providence, had not been seen by her family since Jan. 4. An organized search for the missing woman in mid-February yielded no significant finds. Hofman, who is working with Naval Criminal Intelligence Service for further confirmation of the identity, will continue efforts to get a usable fingerprint from the woman’s badly decomposed body. Hofman said more investigation is needed to help determine how Rubendall actually died.

If anyone has any information about what happened to Janice please contact the authorities. The family deserves answers.

Thank you all for your help in spreading the word about the disappearance. Thank you for your kind words and continued prayers.
