A Hudson County jury has convicted a Virginia man of disposing of his baby daughter’s remains near PATH Train tracks in Jersey City.
Authorities say that Travis Plummer kept the remains of his daughter Te’myah Plummer hidden inside of a suitcase for months before throwing her remains off the Tonnelle Avenue Bridge in March 2018. Plummer then fled to Miami and then Puerto Rico.
Prosecutors say that the child died late in the summer of 2017 from "violence" and "cocaine intoxication." Plummer is said to have placed his daughter's body in the suitcase, which he then brought to Jersey City on Nov. 1, 2017. He hid the body in a garage and then finally threw the body off the bridge in March of 2018. The suitcase and body were found on April 11, 2018, by a Port Authority employee.
Plummer was not charged in the death of his daughter. But a conviction of concealing human remains carries the possibility of a 20-year prison sentence.
Plummer will be sentenced in May.
