DELRAY BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) – Police have released an artist rendering of the woman whose remains were found inside three suitcases in Delray Beach.

According to Delray Beach Police, officers made the grim discovery — a suitcase containing human remains — near the 1000 block of Palm Trail in Delray Beach, Friday.

Hours later, two more suitcases were found in nearby locations about a mile south along the Intracoastal Waterway.

“We would like to provide the public with more information. We have also had the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Forensic Imaging Unit complete a reconstructed image of what our victim may have looked like,” Delray Beach Police Sgt. Casey Kelly. “The artist rendition also contains a full body sketch that has similar clothing to what the victim was found wearing.”

After conducting an autopsy, the medical examiner determined the suitcase contained the human remains of the same victim.

Investigators described the woman as between 35 and 55 years old, standing 5 feet, 4 inches tall, with light brown hair and tattooed eyebrows.

“We’re estimating our female victim as somewhere between 35 and 55 years of age,” said Kelly. “She is either Caucasian or Latin American, she’s roughly 5-foot-4 with brown hair and may have tattooed eyebrows.”

Police said she was wearing a floral tank top made by a Brazilian brand, with a black undershirt and black mid-thigh shorts.

“The brand of the floral top is Betzabe, which is unique and from what we can tell, is a Brazilian company,” said Kelly.

Detectives said she was dumped in the water between July 17 and July 20.

A construction worker called 911 and reported a suspicious item floating in the water along the Intracoastal on Friday.

Police on Thursday also released images of the suitcase that the victim was placed in.

“The first is a purple, Palm Springs, Ricardo Beverly Hills bag,” Kelly said. “The second is a green and black polka dot Charlie sports bag.”

Officials are asking residents who live in the area of Linton Boulevard and the north end of the city along the Intracoastal to review their surveillance video and identify anything out of the ordinary.

“We are again asking for your help with reviewing your personally owned video surveillance cameras along the Intracoastal Waterway during the specified time frame,” said Kelly. “All tips and information should be directed to Detective Liberta, who can be reached at 561-243-7874.”

Investigators said that this picture resembles the likeness of the victim. It is not exactly what she looked like.

Investigator urge people in Miami Dade and Broward counties who may know someone who recognizes this woman to call Delray Beach Police.
