RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A North Carolina sheriff’s office says a woman’s body has been found inside a suitcase near a river.
Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker says a witness contacted Raleigh police Monday morning and reported seeing a body along a section of the Neuse River Trail.
The case is being investigated as a homicide.
A cause of death wasn’t immediately released. Baker declined to say whether the body is that of 28-year-old Brittany Samone Smith, a pregnant woman who was reported missing Thursday.
Baker says the investigation is ongoing.
