Suitcases containing mutilated remains of woman found along South Florida waterway, cops say

The mutilated remains of a woman were spotted inside several suitcases along a South Florida waterway over the weekend. Police released more information on Sunday that could help identify him.

The grisly discovery was made after someone called 911 to report a suspicious object on the Intracoastal Waterway in Delray Beach around 4 p.m. Friday, police said in a news release later in the day. When officers arrived near the 1000 block of Palm Trail, they found a suitcase – with body parts inside.

Shortly after, two more suitcases also containing human remains were discovered along the intracoastal near southeast of Seventh Avenue and Casuarina Road.

“At this early stage of the investigation, the remains appear to belong to an unidentified adult female,” Delray Beach police said Friday.

Police said they are investigating the woman’s death as a homicide.

The victim’s body was taken to the medical examiner’s office to determine who she was and how she died.

On Sunday, police said the woman was white or Hispanic, middle-aged, brown haired and about 5ft 4in tall. She may have had tattooed eyebrows and wore a floral tank top with a black undershirt and black mid-thigh shorts.

Anyone with information about the woman’s death is asked to call Det. Mike Liberta at 561-243-7874.
