Police said there didn’t appear to be any violence or foul play involved in the death of Hightstown woman Joann Palma.
Palma was found dead in her car in East Windsor on Thursday afternoon. She had been missing since November 19.
The Windsor-Hights Herald reported that police found the 62-year-old Palma in a vehicle at the Hampton Arms Apartments in East Windsor at about 1:25 p.m. on Thursday. Hightstown Police Director James Le Tellier said there had been no new information. He said, “All of our leads have led to dead ends.”
Palma had last been seen in Monroe Township at about 6:45 p.m. on November 19, and was reported missing on November 22, according to East Windsor Patch.
Palma was co-owner of Cranbury Pizza with Bob Huegel. Huegel said, according to The Times of Trenton, “We all love her and we’re going to miss her, and I can’t believe that this is how we would find her.” Palma was married with two children.
The business was using its Facebook page to try to locate Palma. Tributes to her were continuing to come in after the news was posted.
According to the Windsor-Hights Herald, anyone with information about the case is being asked to call Hightstown police Sergeant Benjamin Miller or Detective Frank Jiminez at 609-448-1234.
