The next earlier update: Female body found alongside Interstate 65 In Hardin County has been identified
From MTPR Norman Chaffins, Public Affairs Officer
Kentucky State Police Post 4, Elizabethtown, KY
Below is the release from Metro Nashville Police Department: The woman found dead May 29th on the shoulder of I-65 near Elizabethtown, Kentucky has been positively identified through fingerprints as Madiha E. Roshdy, 27, a Nashvillian of Egyptian descent who Metro homicide detectives believe was murdered here a few days before her body was discovered.
A mowing crew came upon the body on the morning of May 29th. There was no identification located on or around the woman. It was determined that she suffered blunt force trauma to her head.
Roshdy was reported as a missing person on the evening of June 20th by a friend who learned that family members in Egypt were concerned for her welfare. The police department's Homicide/Cold Case Unit, which coordinates adult missing person investigations, spoke by telephone with family members in Egypt through an interpreter last week and entered Roshdy's information into a national law enforcement database. The Kentucky connection was then established.
Through the investigation thus far, which included the execution of a search warrant at the Millwood Drive apartment Roshdy shared with her husband and two young daughters (both under the age of 10), detectives believe it likely that Roshdy was killed in the apartment and, shortly thereafter, dumped on the side of the interstate in Kentucky. Roshdy last reported for work at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel on Old Hickory Boulevard at I-65 in South Nashville on May 25th. She was last seen by neighbors at Millwood Manor Apartments, 305 Millwood Drive, on May 26th. Her husband, Alaa Youssef, 39, who worked for Tyson Foods in Shelbyville, flew out of Nashville with the couple's two daughters on June 7th. They arrived in Cairo, Egypt, on June 8th.
Youssef, is considered to be a suspect in Roshdy's death and is wanted for questioning. The investigation, which is being led by Metro Nashville Detective Jill Weaver, is continuing. - From Nashville Metro Police
