The body of the 17-year-old Perth Amboy girl was found Feb. 11 on the ice-covered Yellow Brook off Muhlenbrink road bridge. Dr. C. Malcolm Gil-man, Monmouth County physician, said she died from a concussion and t hemorrhage of the brain and exposure. She was found by a lineman for the New Jersey Bell Tele- hone Co.. fully clothed except or her high heeled leather shoes which have not yet been recovered, according to State Police Detective Walter King. Investigators from the State Police, the Perth Amboy Police Department, the Garden State Parkway, and the Monmouth County prosecutor's office have been trying to determine her wherabouts after t p.m. Feb. 10. Seen Near Home She was last seen at that lime in the vicinity of the Dun-lip and Delaney housing projects, says Perth Amboy Police Chief Paul Jankovich, which is five blocks from her borne at 611 Florida Grove Rd.

During the day, she had visited a doctor, returned home to eat dinner, and left the house saying she "was not going to be gone long," Detective King states. "She had been expected back." Her family consists of her parents, Mrs. Elizabeth Charne Fantazier and Peter Fantazier, who are separated, and three sisters, Phyllis, 19; Elaine, 14, and Nancy, 5. Joanne lived with her mother and sisters. Mrs. Fantazier has an unlisted telephone num-br, and has been unavailable to newsmen. Her husband is unemployed, according to police. "We have been unable to show she has any friends or contacts in Colts Neck," .Detective King says, so the Investigation has been concentrating in the Perth Amboy are where "she had many V .

High School Dropout Miss Fantazier was a high school dropout who had worked as a bookkeeper and sales clerk. At the time of her death, she was not believed to be working since she was convalescing from an appendectomy performed at Perth Amboy General Hospital on Dec. 17. She had been in the hospital from Dec. 14 until Dec. 27.

He said $5,-000 a year should be set aside for this purpose. Mr. Forsman said the Oceanic Fire Co. has prepared specifications for a new pumper to replace its 18-year-old truck.

Because it was aa eye-catcher, the police released to the newspapers a photograph of her wearing 1L The picture was taken earlier in the month by a newspaper, and showed her pointing to an airplane which had made a forced landing In Franklin Township. The police had hoped the photograph would bring information from people who had seen Miss Fantazier during the evening of Feb. 10. possibly at a restaurant. Laboratory reports indicated Miss Fantazier may have stopped to eat again. Detective King said he had received some calls as a result of the published photograph but none had placed her in a location after 7 p.m. No Tire Tracks The shoes, the police surmise, were probably left in the car which Drought her to Colts Neck. Miss Fantazier did not own an automobile, and possible did not have a license as she had only turned 17 on Jan. 5. No tire tracks were available in the area where she died because the road is tarred. Her purse, containing personal items ana papers, was found off the road. Dr. Oilman says that further medical examinations confirmed his first reports that she was "probably hit with a blunt instrument," she had not been sexually assaulted, and she had died within two hours after she hit the ice. She was probably tossed off the bridge. He said her nose had been bleeding, possibly as a result of the fall. The distance from the road to the ice is 12 feet. There are metal guard rails ori both sides of the Vidge. The autopsy was performed at Higgins Memorial Home, Freehold. The investigation, headed by Capt. Phillip Wittcoff, Troop C, Princeton, is continuing.
