The Disappearance and Murder of Greta Tim

 

Greta Tim (14) disappeared from her home in Irvington, New Jersey on July 27th, 2008. The teen girl had run away a few times in the past, but she always returned to her home on Breakenridge Terrace. Police in Irvington would always question Greta after she returned home, but she would not reveal much information about where she went or what she did while she was missing. 

Greta was reported missing again by her mother on August 1st, 2008--three days after she was last seen. Due to her history of leaving on her own accord, Greta was classified as a runaway by police. After more and more time passed without any sign of Greta, she was reclassified as an endangered missing person. 

Nearly four years later, on April 12th, 2012, landscapers found human remains stuffed into a plastic bag in a desolate area of Parsippany, New Jersey--located approximately 20 miles from Irvington. Two months later, the remains were positively identified as that of Greta Tim. Her death was labeled a homicide.

Police believe that Greta was killed in a different location before her body was dumped in Parsippany. Very little details about the investigation are available, and no suspects have been publicly identified.

Greta's murder case remains open today. If you have any information that could help the investigation, please contact the contact the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office at (973) 285-6200.

    2. I know your pain hun. It's an empty place in your heart, life, mind and soul that no one can even come close to filling/replacing. It's excruciating. Some days you can't even breathe, function or live properly. What makes it so much more painful is knowing the wicked person that ripped them away from us, is still walking free, living their lives after taking them from us. I pray your sister, you and your family get the justice you all deserve.
