Body identified as missing student Paige Aiello

NEW YORK (AP) -- A decomposed body found under the George Washington Bridge has been identified as that of missing New Jersey college student Paige Aiello.

The NYPD harbor police discovered Aiello's body Wednesday on rocks near 158th Street. The body was identified Thursday through dental records, a police spokesman said.

Aiello was last seen at her family's home in Hillsborough on April 9. The 22-year-old College of New Jersey senior apparently took her mother's car without permission.

The car was found the next day in New Brunswick parked near a train station. A passer-by reported finding Aiello's purse, cellphone and car keys on the south walkway of the George Washington Bridge.

Police spotted the decomposed body while searching for a possible jumper in the Hudson River.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
