Tattoo above victim's right breast
Unidentified Hispanic or Black Female
A female torso inside a suitcase washed ashore at Harbor Island Park in Nassau County, New York on March 3, 2007. About three weeks later, the two legs were found a day apart — on March 21 off Cold Spring Harbor and March 22 off Cove Neck, along Nassau County's Gold Coast. Each leg had pink toenail polish on some toes. DNA confirmed the legs and torso belonged to the same woman.
Since the torso floated onto the beach as storm-fed floods hit the region, authorities have said it could have come from almost anywhere.
The dark blue or black suitcase is sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores. Police also found small scraps of paper tucked away in the crevaces of the suitcase. When pieced together, it looks like a calendar with the Spanish word "cinco" and the phrase "begin to live."
