Disturbing news out of New York... In Queens, a mother who disappeared last week was found dead inside the trunk of her own car: Missing Mother of 3 Found Strangled in Trunk of Her Own Car, Sources Say.

42-year-old Young Joo Byun, a former missionary and mother of three, was discovered strangled in a plastic garbage bag inside the trunk of her blue Honda Civic parked in Woodside.

Byun had been missing since last Friday after leaving her nightshift job:

Byun was last seen about 4:30 a.m. Friday when she left her nightshift job at a food-supply warehouse on 55th Avenue, near 44th Street, in Maspeth, cops and coworkers said. She had lots of baked goods in her car, leading cops to suspect that she was going to meet someone, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Tuesday.
