The dismembered body of a female found last week has been identified as a Canadian woman.
A dismembered body was discovered in two suitcases in Colonia Centro in Playa del Carmen on April 17 by local transit drivers. Just after midnight, two suitcases that appeared bloodstained were called into emergency services by public transit drivers.
Upon inspection, the upper and lower torso of a female was found inside plastic bags that had been placed in the suitcases. The remains indicated the victim had been tortured before being dismembered.
The suitcases were unloaded from a public transit van that had traveled from Tulum to Playa del Carmen.
Local authorities say the crime originated in the mostly-tourist town of Akumal where the female victim lived. It is believed she was killed by her ex-boyfriend who placed her remains in the suitcases and then traveled to Playa del Carmen where he left them, according to authorities.
The woman is identified only as a 36-year-old Canadian. An investigation is still underway. The body remains at the Forensic Medical Service waiting to be claimed by relatives, who live abroad and are being located through the Canadian Consulate.
