I recently got to know about the whole story, as someone who has recently lost someone very close to her. I just hope her parents and loved ones somehow find peace. Amen

Dr. Sneha Ann Philip was thirty-one years old and living in New York City in September 2001. She was a resident M.D. at St. Vincent’s Hospital and married to Dr. Ron Lieberman, a Jacobi Medical Center emergency room resident. The last confirmed sighting of Sneha was on September 10, 2001 at 7:18 P.M. She was recorded by a Century 21 department store’s security cameras. Sneha and her husband lived in an apartment on Rector Place in the neighborhood of Battery Park, which was around 0.3 miles, or roughly a seven-minute walk, from the World Trade Center. Sneha was born on October 7, 1969 to Ansu and Philip in the southern Indian province of Kerala and has two brothers.

The Philip family moved to New York when Sneha was still a child. According to her brother Ashwin, Sneha was a creative individual whose hobbies included painting, writing, and music. Sneha graduated from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland and then decided she wanted to be a doctor like her father. In 1995, she entered the Chicago School of Medicine. Chicago is also where she met Ron Lieberman. Ron was originally from Los Angeles and a year behind Sneha in the medical program. In order to travel around Italy and to be able to graduate the same year as her then-boyfriend Ron, Sneha took a year off from school. The two graduated in 1999 and both received invitations to do their residency internships in New York City. Ron was placed at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx and Sneha went to the Cabrini Medical Center located in Manhattan.

The couple rented an apartment in the East Village together. The two married in May of 2000 in Sneha’s main home base of Duchess County in southern New York State. The newlyweds shortly then after moved to a one-bedroom apartment in Battery Park. Sneha starting doing internal medicine residency work at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Staten Island, this was her place of employment at the time of her disappearance.
