Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian female. Black hair, brown eyes. Rosenthal's nickname is Dede. She is a Canadian national.
Details of Disappearance Rosenthal was last seen on Friday, February 22, 1991, when she left her job at the Elwyn Institute, a care facility for disabled individuals in Media, Pennsylvania. She worked as a behavioral management specialist at the facility; she had moved to New Jersey from Canada to take the job.
Authorities initially suspected Rosenthal had left of her own accord; she was having financial problems, had borrowed extensively from relatives, and was about to be evicted. However, her purse, keys, credit cards, identification, and work briefcase were all left behind, and she left her cat alone on her apartment balcony in the winter cold, which is uncharacteristic of her. Her family never thought she left on her own.
According to Reddish, he broke into her apartment while she was asleep, planning to simply burglarize it, but Rosenthal woke up and saw him. He beat her and smothered her to death with a pillow so she could not identify her, then stole $80 from her purse and left the residence, leaving the body behind. A few days later he returned, wrapped her body in a bedspread, put it in a shopping cart and transported it to the trunk of his girlfriend's car. He dumped Rosenthal's corpse in a remote area off Route 130 in Salem County.
Foul play is suspected in Rosenthal's case due to the circumstances involved; her body has never been found.
