    This was not posted in AC Press Until Jan 6. The paper has recently changed ownership....the site is a mess. I wasn't able to see it until today.

    They are trying to identify a body found in a suitcase ! They are hoping pics of tatoos might help with ID.
    I posted here because I find the Unidentified Forum impossible to navigate.

    Hopefully you will be able to see the article.

    If not,It is Press of Atlantic City

    I was just looking at this story earlier, they think she could have been deceased for around a month.

    gm8549 a tip for the forums, you probably know this but if you click on the word thread in the upper left of the forums you are viewing it will list them alphabetically by state. this is if they're posted properly.

    Also a Warning for the link above - Graphic Images

    Gloucester County woman was victim found in Egg Harbor Township suitcase


    Tara Rogers-Alicea, 30, of Monroeville, was reported missing in October by a family member, according to officials. She died of asphyxiation with strangulation, an autopsy found. The death has been ruled a homicide.

    ................. snip ....................
    .............................................

    Jessica Galli Mendez posted an NBC10 story about the remains' discovery on her Facebook page Tuesday, saying it was her best friend. In the post, she said the victim's mother was notified Tuesday morning, but that Mendez had believed it was Rogers-Alicea as soon as she heard about the body Monday evening.

    Looks like she may of been missing longer than October. Her fb was last updated in the summer. I looked and couldn't find anything about her missing, although it says reported. Sad.

    Ugh, Linda - I hadn't even thought of the room alone thing - like those scary dump motels on the Pike, right...? She was dumped in EHT - about 5-6 miles away from where the girls from A/C where found, no?
    Just awful - her poor children...

    A lot of woods there, I hope they took the time to look the area over.


    Most recent info,

    Tara Rogers-Alicea&#8217;s mother reported her missing on Oct. 22 &#8212; about two-and-a-half months before the 30-year-old&#8217;s body was found in Egg Harbor Township, authorities said.

    Her mother said at the time that she hadn&#8217;t seen Rogers-Alicea in at least four months.

    Rogers-Alicea was believed to be living, perhaps on the streets, in Atlantic City, just east of the area in which her body was found. For that reason, Clayton Police Chief Dennis Marchei said his department turned over the missing persons report to Atlantic City police.

    Oh no....here we go.....
    I'm already mad at the lack of attention I foresee this woman's death receiving.....I'm going to have a hard time verbalizing it, but: I am getting the feeling this lady was living on the fringes....and possibly making a living....anyway, I'm sure we all get what the situation most likely was....these women are completely devalued in our society, and seemingly by law enforcement....I'm guessing we will watch this one slip quietly away with no resolution....
