On Sunday, police recovered the body of Stephanie Parze. The 25-year-old had been missing since Oct. 30. She had reportedly sent a Snapchat on her way home after spending an evening with her family in New Brunswick, New Jersey, which was the last time anyone had heard from her.

According to Asbury Park Press, Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Christopher L.C. Kuberiet and Old Bridge Police Chief William Volkert stated that the Freehold Township resident's body was found on Sunday at 2:46 p.m. An autopsy on Monday morning at 9 a.m. confirmed the remains belonged to Parze. 

Following Parze's October disappearance, friends and family started to become concerned when she did not show up for her babysitting job and was unresponsive to calls and texts. As reported by NJ.com, her car and phone were located at her grandmother's house, but there were no signs of forced entry at the scene. Her mother, Sharlene Parze, reported her missing on Oct. 31. 

During the initial 911 call, Sharlene had stated that she believed her daughter's on-again-off-again boyfriend, John Ozbilgen, could have been with her on the night of Oct. 30. NJ.com reports that Ozbilgen had sent Stephanie "10 angry text messages" the night prior to her disappearance. He was also accused of assaulting her in September 2019. 

In November, Ozbilgen was subsequently charged with one count of possession of child pornography, as reported by NJ.com. Soon after, authorities learned that he had hanged himself inside his Freehold Township home. Monmouth County prosecutors also had also classified him as a person of interest in Stephanie's disappearance prior to his suicide, according to NBC New York.

Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni stated that a press conference is set for Monday.
