🚨 Her car was missing

🚨 The suspect Rami El Sayed was found in Paterson on Monday

A man was arrested early Monday in Paterson and charged with the murder of a woman whose body had been found at a Virginia campground.

Fairfax County, Virginia police said Cara Abbruscato, 40, of Fairfax, was found dead inside a makeshift tent at Burke Lake Park on Saturday afternoon.

Another group of campers with a reservation to use the same spot in the public park arrived and reported the tent, which was actually a tarp tied to a tree, according to police.

Camp employees called the police who looked inside and found Abbruscato's body with cuts and stab wounds to the upper body. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Abbruscato and El Sayed knew each other for a short time, officials said.

Video surveillance captured images of them coming and going from the tent several times between Sept. 19 and Sept. 30.

Abbruscato had been reported missing and endangered at the beginning of September but was found safe, according to police. Another camper in the park told NBC Washington she was charged with drug possession a short time later.

El Sayd was stopped in Paterson during a traffic stop in Abbruscato's car on Saturday, officials said.

He was taken into custody by Paterson police and charged with second-degree murder. He is awaiting extradition back to Virginia.

Windfarm projects proposed for NJ coast — and what they might look like

These are the wind energy projects approved for and planned for the ocean off the coasts of New Jersey and New York. While the projects have the support of officials who say they will stimulate the local economy and create renewable energy to power millions of homes, many coastal residents have raised concerns about how the projects will impact tourism and the environment.

The gallery includes competing photosimulations — those on file with the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and those recently commissioned by a group opposed to the wind farm development.
