The suitcase was found along the I-985 northbound in Gwinnett County. The GCPD reported that the suitcase was found about 80 yards into the woods by a construction worker.
Police are hoping someone may recognize the clothing or sketch that was made and come forward with her name.
According to the Medical Examiner’s Office, the remains are of a female between 20-30 years old. Based on the decomposition, she is thought to have died abut 6 months ago. The ME is still investigating to determine cause of death. A full set of remains were contained inside the suitcase.
The remains were identified as female, white, probably Asian Indian or Eastern Indian, 5’1″ – 5’5″ tall, 20-29 years old with spinal fusion with slight Scoliosis that the female may not have known about. There was also signs of a healed left-side rib.
GCPS reported that the remains did not match any missing person in Gwinnett County.
