Gabriela Lima Santana Found
It was reported that one of Santana’s arms fell out of the suitcase when a worker used the heavy machine to lift luggage. Her limb sank to the bottom of the pool and floated to the surface. Forensics experts recovered her head, torso, legs and another arm from the suitcase.
Investigators found saws and knives along with the body parts and these are suspected to have been used to amputate the young woman.
Additionally, the suitcase had rocks that were used to make it sink.

Santana’s fingerprints and the distinctive tattoos on her body, one of which was reportedly affiliated with a local gang, were used to identify her.
After the grisly finding, the investigators probed a creepy video they had received two weeks ago on March 1, in which a woman was filmed being hacked inside a bathroom by a smiling killer. Police believe that the woman in this video is Santana.
