  2. Pink and Nike, to my knowledge, are both rather expensive brands. Especially Pink - I bought my niece a pair of leggings from there for Christmas one year, and it was fifty dollars for just that. Speaking of clothes, I think I've found the style of pants she was wearing:

    Her clothes make me think jogger. Perhaps she was on a run when she met her end. As for the location, there are two colleges twenty minutes from there (Georgia Gwinnett College and Gwinnett Technical College). Even closer is Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, which is only ten minutes away. Back in 2003, a student from PCOM named Rebecca Park was found dead after a walk. Not necessarily related, but I think it's worth looking into.

    My theory is that she was on a jog also.

    Remains found in suitcase off I-985 in 2016 identified as missing woman

    Updated: Jun 28, 2019 - 7:59 PM

    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Police have identified the skeletal remains found in a suitcase along I-985 in 2016 as a woman who had been reported missing in 2014.

    Dental records and medical records have confirmed that the bones belong to Jessica Ashley Manchini, 29. Police have not determined her cause of death.

    Manchini was reported missing by her mother two years before the remains were found. Police said she spent the last years of her life living in Gwinnett County but was originally from Pennsylvania.

    The remains were found in July 2016 along the highway in Buford. The victim was wearing a Miley Cyrus hoodie and Victoria's Secret Pink sweatpants at the time the remains were found.

    Police released a sketch of Manchini in 2017, identifying her as a possible murder victim.

    A tag from the suitcase had faded blue ink that was no longer visible to the human eye.

    Police tested the tag at the time but couldn't determine what was written on it.

    In June, the tag was reexamined with new technology. The tag revealed a partial name and address that lead to the identity of the victim.

    Police are asking anyone with information on the case to contact the Gwinnett County Police Department at 770-513-5300.

    Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477). Police are offering a cash reward for information leading to an arrest.

    She was reported missing. And they knew she lived in that county. I'm really surprised she wasn't identified before now!

    Praying for Jessica's family!

    Agreed. She was reported missing, known to have been from that area, and was never compared? I wonder why a comparison was never made? I would think the first step to any UI deceased person investigation would be to rule out all local missing persons.

    Probably like many cases where they closed it without really even opening it. We have one in southern Missouri that they officially closed and to find out they never really even did anything at all.
