Body Of Woman Found In 3 Suitcases In River

Police in Florida made a gruesome discovery when responding to a call about suspicious items floating in a waterway. On July 21, cops were called by construction workers who saw a suitcase afloat in the Intercoastal Waterway. After finding the case, police discovered two others nearby and were horrified to find the dismembered body of the same woman in all three cases.

Delray Police said the woman was White or Hispanic, aged between 35 and 55, had brown hair and tattooed eyebrows, and was wearing a floral tank top with a black camisole shirt underneath and black shorts. Officers say they believe the body was dumped into the water between Monday, July 17, and the morning of Thursday, July 20. The shirt the victim was wearing was said to have been made by the Brazilian company Betzabe. The suitcases are described as “unique.”

It is unclear exactly how the victim died, and police are appealing for information, specifically about unknown or unusual vehicles or activity in the area from July 17 to July 20.

Days after the discovery, police artists published what they believe is an accurate lookalike of the victim. The sheriff’s office forensic imaging unit in Palm Beach Count said, “It’s important for the public to know that these reconstructed images are not an exact likeness of the victim or her clothing and are simply the interpretation of the artist.”

Law enforcement officers have also released a photo of two of the suitcases. These are a purple Palm Springs Ricardo Beverly Hills bag and a green-and-black polka-dot Charlie Sports bag.

Meanwhile, Brevard County Sheriff’s Office in Florida is seeking information about a man’s body found floating in water near Orlando. The body was located at 600 West Merritt Island Causeway and was discovered early in the morning of July 17. Police have not named the man and medical examiners will conduct an autopsy to find the exact cause of death.
