CB OB Woman Raped, Murdered, Set on Fire in Her Bed

UPDATED: Investigation continues into the recent rape and murder of Petra Rohrbaugh, a 52 year old woman who lived in a house at 18 Hilltop Boulevard in the Cliffwood Beach section of Old Bridge, NJ. According to reports in NJ.com and APP, Rohrbaugh was raised in Germany and came to the US with a man from the US Air Force. They had two children and had then separated. Rohrbaugh moved to this area to be near her daughter -- a nurse living near OB -- and a grandchild. Her son still lives in Germany. Rohrbaugh gave local piano lessons and played organ for St Mark's Episcopal Church in Keansburg.  She had planned to move to Keansburg in a few months to be closer to the church.

Neighbors seemed to suspect a friend of a contractor working on the house next door, according to CBS. No one has been charged with the murder, but an ex-con from Perth Amboy is being held by police for interfering with the investigation.
