At 10:30 a.m. Friday, the suspect kicked down the locked door of a Millburn, N.J., house and assaulted an unsuspecting homeowner.

“I knew that if I started screaming, my daughter would too, and I was afraid she would get hurt,” the victim told News12 N.J. “I took it. I didn’t cry the entire time.”

The suspect made off with an unspecified amount of jewelry, including the woman’s wedding ring, according to WABC. The woman’s 1-year-old daughter was upstairs during the incident. Neither child was harmed.

“The man viciously beat the woman,” Capt. Michael Palardy told Millburn Patch.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated for injuries to her face and legs, according to The Star-Ledger.

Atlantic Highlands Jane Doe.. Found 12/10/88.. Atlantic Highlands,NJ.Atlantic Highlands Jane Doe.. Found 12/10/88.. Atlantic Highlands, NJ.

Drawing and clay bust of Atlantic Highlands Jane Doe

On December 10, 1988, while local residents gathered to help clear a parcel of land that runs along the Sandy Hook Bay in Atlantic Highlands for a bicycle trail, a local volunteer found what he at first thought was a plastic ball, which turned out to be a human skull. The resident reported the find to the Atlantic Highlands Police Department who began an investigation into this found human skull.

Once the Monmouth County Medical Examiner’s Office and the State of New Jersey Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that the skull was human, the Atlantic Highlands Police Department, with the assistance of the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, New Jersey State Police, Connecticut State Police, Monmouth County Medical Examiner’s Office, State of New Jersey Medical Examiner’s Office, Burlington County Medical Examiner’s Office, the local Department of Public Works and Water Department, excavated the area by sifting the earth in four sectors, recovering more than 85% of the skeletal remains.

An anthropology examination was performed upon the skeletal remains, which were identified as a:


Caucasian female
between the ages of 15 to 18 years old at time of death
5’1″ to 5’4″
approximately 100 to 120 pounds.

The decedent was found to be wearing the following: 

Platform sandal shoes, composed of brown leather with brown painted plastic platform soles and a 2½ inch high heel, size 6½
knee high white acrylic socks
grey & red nylon long sleeved laced top
white brassiere.

Additional items near the remains: 

Portion of one pink rubber “thong-type” sandal
leather like shoe or small boot with a picture of a football scene on side in red and white.


A botanist reviewed the scene and clothing in the skeletal remains and estimated the body had been in that same location for approximately the previous fifteen years. This would put the year of death at approximately 1973 to 1975.


An investigation by the Atlantic Highlands Police Department was conducted in an attempt to identify the human skeletal remains. The human skeletal remains were mapped out and placed in the National Police computer system for all law enforcement departments to compare to their missing persons.


The local media from the tri-state area converged on the small town of Atlantic Highlands and broadcast the human skeletal recovery for about four straight days. Massive medical coverage was aired and a special program called Crime Beat highlighted this case.
No identification was made.


In 1992, with the assistance of the FBI, a clay reconstruction was made over the human skull and is a possible resemblance of what this recovered female skeletal remains may have looked like. Additionally, several parts of the skeletal remains were sent to LabCorp in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina for mitochondrial DNA profiling in 1997.
The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office and the Atlantic Highlands Police Department now have a DNA profile that can be used to link this female subject to a family member as well as dental records.


Anyone with information concerning this matter is asked to call the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office at 732/ 431-7012 or 1 800/ 533-7443 (toll free) or the Atlantic Highlands Police Department at 732/ 291-1212.

PHILADELPHIA — Danielle Imbo, then 34,  had known Richard Petrone, then 35, since she was fifteen years old. Though they had gone to different high schools in New Jersey (she attended Cherry Hill High School East while he was at Bishop Eustace Prep in nearby Pennsauken) Danielle was good friends with Richard’s sister, Christine. Danielle had a ”crush” on Richard, but he had been so consumed with playing ice hockey at the time, he hadn’t picked up on her interest. It wasn’t until much later that they rediscovered one another and became a couple, but by this time, Danielle had been married and divorced once. The man’s name was ”Joe Imbo” who had threatened Richard a few times over the phone but isn’t a suspect as of now.

It was a chilly night, February 19th 2005, when Richard Petrone and Danielle Imbo vanished, along with the pick-up truck they were driving. The disappearance was truly a mystery and still is. No phone calls to friends or family members, no ransom notes, no wreckage, no remains. After years of searching for the missing couple, the police say they have “zero physical evidence.” Despite extensive searches, Richard’s 2001 four-door Dodge Dakota pickup has not been located. Richard’s and Danielle’s credit cards and ATM cards have not been used since they walked out of Abilene’s that night. There has been no activity on either of their cellphones. Surveillance cameras that routinely record transactions at ATM machines showed no signs of either of them. Video cameras at highway toll plazas and river crossings have no record of Richard’s truck passing through that night. It’s as if they vanished into thin air.

“Not a lipstick, not a bag, not a shoe, not a car, not an eyewitness, not a tip, not anything,” Danielle’s brother, John Ottobre said.

They were last seen at Abilene’s bar and restaurant on South Street in Philadelphia, and Richard’s best friend Rick Bellezzi stated that the couple “left the club happy at about 11:45pm.”.. Many who knew the two of them stated they were NOT the type to up and leave without an explanation. They were very happy with there lives and all they had left behind and just wouldn’t walk away from friends and family like that.

 A reward of $100,000 is being offered for any information that will lead to the whereabouts of Danielle and Richard, and police in Philadelphia and New Jersey as well as the FBI continue to search for the couple. But so far they’ve come up empty.

 Danielle Imbo is an attractive brunette with hazel eyes and an infectious smile. Her friends agree that she’s “very smart” with a great ”personality and sense of humor.” One friend described her as a “very blunt” person, “a tell-it-like-it-is type of girl.” A few years before her disappearance, she sang in a rock band called the ”School Boys”, following in the footsteps of her late father, Johnny Ottobre, who in the 1950s had been the lead singer in a well-known doo-wop group called the ”Four Dates”. She has a tattoo on her lower back, a symbol of her astrological sign (Leo) inside a horseshoe of flowers.

Richard Petrone has two tattoos. One is of a clown which is located on his right arm, the other is his daughter’s name (Angela) tattooed on his left arm. He is described as being ”good natured and jovial” He has a stocky, solid build. He has brown hair, blue eyes and usually wears a goatee or a sculpted full beard. Richard is also described as layed back type of guy who liked occasionally drinking beer with friends and relaxing after a long week, a good personality, someone who loved his family and friends too much to ever leave on his own accord.

Richard and Danielle’s family miss them and want answers. Some fear the worst while others try to remain hopeful that one day they will get there loved ones back.

According to Sergeant Tim Cooney of the Philadelphia Police, “No one is a suspect and everyone is a subject of this investigation.”
