November 4, 2008 at 5:11 AM (PT)
The woman whose husband allegedly killed her and dumped her body in woods on LONG ISLAND was a former intern on HOWARD STERN's show and a contestant in his "Intern Beauty Pageant" 10 years ago. NEWSDAY reports that STERN played a clip of the pageant on his SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO show MONDAY in which LEAH WALSH (then LEAH HIRSCHEL) complained that "I never have luck with men ... they all gave me the lines."
WALSH's body was found last WEDNESDAY in NORTH HILLS; her husband is accused of strangling her on OCTOBER 26th after an argument over his cheating and then creating a story about her disappearance to cover his tracks.
WILLIAM WALSH, JR. is being held without bail.
