Missing pregnant woman found dead in Philadelphia


DELAWARE COUNTY, PA – A pregnant woman who was reported missing from Delaware County in late March has been found dead Monday in Philadelphia.

Dianna Brice, 21, was four and a half months pregnant. Her body was found at around 11 pm on Monday in the woods near Eastwick Avenue and 58th Street.

She was last seen exiting a laundromat in Landsdowne with her mother Betty Cellini. She told her mother she was going to meet with her boyfriend, Justin Smith, 23. On the way home, it was reported that Smith and Brice got into an argument and she exited the car. Later that day, Smith’s 2018 Ford Fusion was found at the intersection of Cobbs Creek Parkway and Florence Avenue, engulfed in flames.

Both Smith and Brice were missing and their phones have not been active since. Smith is still missing and it is unsure at this time whether or not he is considered a suspect.
