Investigators probe Newark for clues in 50-year-old California cold case murder
Investigators are looking into Newark for clues in a 50-year-old cold case murder that occurred in California.
San Diego police say Arminda Grangela Rodrigues Da Silva Ribeiro, 29, was dismembered and placed in an orange suitcase with several plastic bags in 1973.
Fishermen found her body in the San Diego Bay in June of that year, according to investigators. However, she was not identified until 2020 due to the dismemberment.
Police say her relatives immigrated from Portugal to the ironbound section of New Jersey. She worked at a trailer fabrication company in Newark at the time of her disappearance and may still have family in the area.
Investigators say they are still searching for suspects in connection to the murder.
