(Newser) – With Stepha Henry missing for months after a trip to south Florida, New York police yesterday arrested a suspect whose abandoned car held so much of Henry's blood that police, declaring "no one could survive with that loss of blood," charged the man with second-degree murder, the Miami Herald reports. Henry, 22, went missing from a Florida nightclub last spring.

Henry, an aspiring attorney, was in Florida over Memorial Day to celebrate her sister's birthday when she went out with acquaintance Kendrick Williams and never returned. Williams became a suspect when Florida police tracked down the car he had been driving that night, and found Henry's blood. Police found him yesterday sleeping in a car near a Brooklyn pier.
