Body found in suitcase in Roseland identified as 21-year-old Dominique Ferguson

A body found stuffed in a suitcase in an alley in the Far South Side Roseland neighborhood on Sunday has been identified as 21-year-old Dominique Ferguson.

She was found dead about 2 p.m. in the 300 block of West 115th Street, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. She lived in the 400 block of West 125th Place.

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

It was not yet known how she died, as an autopsy Monday did not rule on cause and manner of death, with results pending further investigation.

Area South detectives are conducting a death investigation pending results of the autopsy, police said.
