Chicago crime: Dominique Ferguson identified as woman found dead in suitcase

The body found in a suitcase left in a Roseland, Illinois alley over the weekend has been identified as a 21-year-old woman from West Pullman.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said the victim has been identified as Dominique Ferguson. The young woman’s body was found inside a red suitcase found near trash cans in an alley around 2 p.m. Sunday.

An autopsy conducted Monday was inconclusive, pending further investigation.

Some media reports said the body was found stuffed in a suitcase by teenagers playing in the area.

Area South detectives were conducting a death investigation.

Chicago murders have been in the headlines regularly, but usually related to gang violence, mass shootings over weekends and police investigations not capturing criminals.
