police discovered Edelman's body in Trump's New Cumberland apartment early Wednesday morning.
"They weren't supposed to be in contact," Zeiders said, noting the protection from abuse order that Edelman had obtained against Trump. "It's just not like her to go down there (to his house). I don't know if he made her go, or what."
Trump was due in court today for a pre-trial conference in a case stemming from an incident at his Mechanicsburg apartment last summer. In that incident, police say Trump forced Edelman on his bed and threatened to kill both himself and her during a custody exchange involving their now 2-year-old daughter.
Given the dangerous situation, investigators contacted the Cumberland County dispatch center to try and locate Edelman and Trump through their cell phones, according to court documents.
"What really started to bear fruit... was the use of some investigative procedures that allowed us to track cell phones," District Attorney David Freed said of the investigation.
Through the complicated process, investigators discovered both cell phones were bouncing off of the same signal, which Freed said indicates they were near the same location.
After obtaining a key from the landlord, investigators entered the apartment around 3 a.m.
Freed said they found Edelman and Trump in a second-story bedroom.
Trump was sleeping next to Edelman's body in the bed and was startled by police when they grabbed him, according to Freed.
When investigators tried to ask Edelman about her condition, Trump said "She's dead," according to court documents.
