Case History The victim's dismembered remains were found washed upon the beach between April 4th and 8th around the Rickenbacker Causeway and other Dade County waterways. Her remains were found along with the dismembered remains of an unidentified male. While cause of death is unknown, the victim suffered a head injury made with a blunt object. It is believed that a saw was used for dismemberment. She was wrapped in a sheet and stuffed into a green plastic garbage bag. Investigators have invested a lot of time and money into the case they've dubbed "Theresa Torso." A drawing and reconstruction of the victim was completed but neither is unavailable at this time.
