RICHMOND, Va. — The body of a Richmond toddler reported missing last August was found in a suitcase in New Jersey, ABC7 in New York reported.

Crime Insider sources confirmed the information to Jon Burkett.

Te’Myah’s body was found April 11 in a suitcase along train tracks in Jersey City, ABC7 reported. The remains were identified this week.
