    Sorry, I thought you could just click on the link and get it....

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (May 16) - A suitcase containing human remains was found floating near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel on Sunday, the third such discovery in the area this month. A boater alerted police that he had found the suitcase floating off the second island of the bridge-tunnel, said Virginia Beach police spokesman Don Rimer.

    The remains were sent to the state medical examiner's office in Norfolk. Detectives believe the third suitcase is related to the two found previously this month, Rimer said.

    On May 11, a graduate student who was bird-watching on Fisherman's Island off Virginia's Eastern Shore found a suitcase containing body parts wrapped in plastic bags, reportedly including a human head. Less than a week earlier, a fisherman discovered a suitcase containing human remains near the fourth island of the bridge-tunnel.

    Police described the remains as being those of a white male. Police said it was not immediately known how long the man had been dead or his identity.

    So do all three suitcases contain parts of the same dead guy or are these 3 different dead guys? I'm confused.

    Body parts in 3 suitcases same man
    By Sean Salai
    THE WASHINGTON TIMES

    Virginia Beach police yesterday said that the body parts in three suitcases found floating near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel this month belonged to the same man

    No identification yet, but DNA and fingerprints have apparently been submitted for comparison to data banks. (Fingerprints from the corpse probably indicates that the body was in the water less than a month)

    Makes sense. Obviously didn't have one suitcase big enough. I would assume if they were trying to confuse the issue, the suitcases would have been dumped in separate places.
    Just the facts, Ma'am.

    Wife arrested in slaying/dismemberment of husband

    The wife of a New Jersey man whose body was hacked up, put in three suitcases and dumped in waters off the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel last year was arrested Thursday morning in his slaying.

    Melanie McGuire, 32, of Brick, N.J., was to be charged Thursday afternoon with first-degree murder in the killing of William T. McGuire, said John R. Hagerty, spokesman for the state Division of Criminal Justice.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    The "Suitcase Killer" has been identified by authorities as a "demure" mother of two named Melanie McGuire.

    Yesterday, they accused the 32-year-old Ocean County woman of shooting her husband, then carefully cutting him up -- likely with help -- and stuffing the parts in three suitcases, then dumping them off the Virginia coast last year.

    Melanie McGuire, of Brick, was nabbed by police in Metuchen after she dropped her two young children off at daycare yesterday morning.

    She was charged with first-degree murder and could get the death penalty if convicted of the murder of her husband, William, 39, last May.

    Black trash garbage bags used to dispose of her husbandís body parts, match those used in New Jersey to bag her husbandís belongings, investigators say.

    Forensics were also done with tape used on the bags, that had fingernail polish on it, "that once again link Mrs. McGuire to the killer," said Attorney General Peter Harvey. "She did not act alone. Our investigation is ongoing."

    High-tech analysis was done on cellular phone calls, and also on bullets she bought compared with bullets in her husbandís body parts found 350 miles away, said Fuentes.

    Brettel said the most unusual forensics involved "looking at the bags, how they were manufactured, how you look at one bag and how it may be related to another bag." He said there is dye streaking that comes off the production lines.

    Asked if there were fingerprints on the tape used on the trash bags, he just smiled and said, "I canít make any comment."

    The first suitcase floated up from the depths of the Chesapeake Bay on May 5, 2004, and was found by a fisherman.

    Over the next nine days, two more followed. The three pieces of the matching, imitation leather luggage contained the dismembered body of William T. McGuire, a 39-year-old former Navy man, an NJIT computer analyst and the father of two young boys, one with autism.

    As she was arrested Thursday for her husband's murder, the story grew more complex. According to an affidavit in the case, Melanie McGuire was carrying on an affair during the time of the murder with a doctor she worked with at a Morristown fertility clinic, the investigator said.

    Arrow Mystery letter surfaces in Woodbridge suitcase murder

    State authorities are investigating an anonymous letter that claims Melanie McGuire did not fatally shoot her husband, whose dismembered body was found floating in suitcases in the Chesapeake Bay last year.

    "This is significant evidence in an ongoing investigation," said Paul Loriquet, a spokesman for the Attorney General's Office, which is prosecuting the case for the state. "No theory is being ruled out as to the authorship."

    Law enforcement authorities do not believe McGuire acted alone and said they are pursuing other suspects who may have helped her.

    At the end of the four-page letter, the author claims to know details about the murder that authorities have never disclosed, such as that William McGuire "was wearing nothing but purple briefs when you found him." It also states that news articles "made it seem like his arms were cut off. They weren't."

    Henry Klingeman, the Madison attorney representing Melanie McGuire, said the letter is "obviously from somebody who wants us to believe he knows details of the murder that only somebody involved in the murder would know."

    The letter writer appears to have known McGuire well, disclosing details about his work, his relationships, his gambling habits. It claims he had a drug habit and spoke about being "rid" of his wife, suggesting he meant to kill Melanie McGuire.

    The letter chides investigators for dismissing a connection between his death and his gambling habit.

    NEWARK, N.J. -- A woman charged in June with killing her husband has been indicted on charges of murder and the desecration of his corpse, which washed up in suitcases in waters off Virginia, authorities said today.


    Melanie McGuire was also accused of perjury and a weapons violation, according to the four-count indictment handed up by a state grand jury on Tuesday and made public today.

    McGuire, 32, could face a term of 30 years to life if convicted in the death of William T. McGuire.

    "The state is not seeking the death penalty at this time," said John R. Hagerty, a spokesman for the state Division of Criminal Justice.

    Wonder if she also wrote the letter that LE recieved? The letter claimed that his death was related to his gambling debts, but the letter writer also claimed to know details about the death that LE didn't publicize.

    Trial Set for Nurse Accused of Stuffing Husband's Body Parts Into Suitcase

    TRENTON, N.J. ó Nearly three years after suitcases full of body parts washed up along Chesapeake Bay in Virginia, a nurse who helped infertile women conceive is to go on trial this week on charges that she killed and dismembered her husband.

    Melanie McGuire is charged with first-degree murder in the April 2004 killing of her husband, 39-year-old state computer analyst William T. McGuire. She pleaded not guilty and has remained free on $2.1 million bail.

    Her trial was scheduled to open Monday at Middlesex County Courthouse in New Brunswick, and state Superior Court Judge Frederick DeVesa estimated the proceeding will last four to five weeks.

    The judge has instructed lawyers in the case to restrict their comments outside the courtroom.
