Unidentified woman’s remains found in three separate suitcases

Authorities in South Florida have made a disturbing discovery, recovering three suitcases believed to contain the remains of an unidentified woman from the Intracoastal Waterway in Delray Beach. The Delray Beach Police Department (DBPD) received a 911 call about a suspicious item in the water, leading to the recovery of the suitcases.

According to the DBPD, the first suitcase retrieved from the water contained human remains. Subsequently, two more pieces of luggage were found in nearby locations, also containing human remains. In an effort to gather more information, the police released a reconstructed image of the victim that was created by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Forensic Imaging Unit. The image depicts a woman between the ages of 35 and 55, approximately 5 feet 4 inches tall. The victim was believed to have been killed between July 17th and July 20th.

The reconstructed image portrays the victim’s potential appearance before her untimely death. Additionally, a full-body sketch was provided, illustrating the clothing she was wearing when discovered. Described as White or Hispanic with possible brown hair and tattooed eyebrows, the woman was depicted wearing a floral, off-shoulder top and mid-thigh black shorts. The shirt brand, “Betzabe,” is believed to be of Brazilian origin. However, the police emphasized that the reconstructed images are interpretations and may not be an exact likeness of the victim or her clothing.

Alongside the artist-generated images, the police released photos of two of the three suitcases recovered from the Intracoastal Waterway. One suitcase is described as a purple Palm Springs Ricardo Beverly Hills bag, while the other is a green and black polka dot Charlie Sport bag. The DBPD is urging anyone with information about the case or who may recognize the suitcases to come forward. They are also asking residents living along the Intracoastal Waterway to review their personal video surveillance footage from July 17th to July 20th.
