North Carolina authorities are investigating a horrific incident after a human body was found stuffed in a suitcase that was dumped near a river Monday morning.
The suitcase was located at around 11 a.m. near the Neuse River in Raleigh which is the same area where a 28-year-old pregnant woman was last seen four days ago.
Brittany Samone was living with her boyfriend in a tent in Wendell, not far from the scene, when she went missing.
“It’s not every day, it’s not every morning that you find what could be a person’s body in a suitcase, in a river, this was no accident,” Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker said.
“If this is in fact, this young lady that we’ve been looking for all weekend, someone is responsible for that.”
