The remains of a woman found Sunday in a suitcase in Atlantic County have been identified as those of a 30-year-old from Gloucester County, authorities said Wednesday.
Tara Rogers-Alicea was identified initially from photographs of tattoos. Her identity was confirmed by fingerprint analysis, the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office said, and a DNA analysis is in progress.
Rogers-Alicea was from the Monroeville section of Elk Township, the Prosecutor's Office said in a statement. Her Facebook profile lists her hometown as Clayton, where her family lives, and shows Turnersville, Washington Township, as her last place of residence. All three towns are in Gloucester County.
