Philadelphia police say the body of a missing Temple University student has been found and a man will be charged in her death.
Authorities believe Hupperterz killed Burleigh in Philadelphia, took her body to his mother's home in Jenkintown and then his grandmother's property where she was found.
In addition to murder, Hupperterz faces charges of tampering with evidence, abuse of corpse and drug offenses.
It is not clear whether the unidentified Lyft driver knew what was in the storage bin, or where the bin was placed in his vehicle.
A spokesperson for Lyft said the company is devastated by the allegations and stands "ready to work with the authorities in their investigation".
Hupperterz, 29, was charged early Sunday with killing the Temple University student from Lower Salford, and he remains behind bars, having been denied bail. Burleigh's body was discovered at his grandmother's Wayne County home more than 100 miles away.

The 16 MP front-facing camera with F/1.9 aperture paired with its own single tone LED flash can also take some great photographs. In case of Samsung Galaxy J7 +, the user interface has been tweaked a bit - something the company does with every smartphone.
When Joshua Hupperterz left a North Philadelphia bar early Thursday morning, he was caught by a surveillance camera walking with a young woman.
Family member Ed Burleigh said Saturday on Facebook "Our Beautiful Angel Jenna is now in Heaven".
Hupperterz was arrested by police at his grandma's home, as indicated by the Philadelphia Inquirer. Now, friends remember her as a positive and caring person who believed in helping others, her social media posts asking for donations for Philadelphia's homeless and advocating for equality during a local women's march in January.
"This really strikes home for you, particularly, thinking about the heartache and the grief that those parents must be going through right now", said Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross, adding that he also has a 22-year-old daughter.
Burleigh was with Hupperterz at around 2 a.m.at Pub Web near Temple's main campus.
