Police seek answers to homicide at motel in Maple Shade, NJ

MAPLE SHADE — The identity of the woman who was killed last week in a Route 73 motel room has been revealed.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in the homicide investigation involving 36-year-old Michelle L. Johnston, who had recently lived in multiple locations in the Burlington and Camden County areas.
