A DJ was found dead in a suitcase in a dumpster as police believe she was strangled.
Valentina Trespalacios, 23, was found inside the luggage in Bogota, Colombia, on January 22, as police search for her boyfriend, who has gone missing.
An autopsy revealed deep grooves in the Colombian DJ’s neck, which have led police to believe she was throttled.
American John Poulos, 35, is currently being searched for by police, according to local reports.
Mr Poulos has been missing since Ms Trespalacios’ body was found, and has reportedly deleted his social media accounts.
The horrifying discovery was made when a man spotted the suitcase in a skip.
When he opened it and found the body, he called the police to the scene.
During an inspection of the surrounding area, investigators found personal items belonging to the popular DJ, who had close to 16,000 followers on Instagram.
Among them were a student ID issued by Uninpahu University, where she is understood to have been studying trade and global business technology.
Other than the wounds to her neck, the autopsy revealed no other signs of violence.
Police Lieutenant Colonel Camilo Torres told local media: “Work is being carried out with security cameras in the area to identify the alleged perpetrators.”
Police are currently trying to confirm if Mr Poulos has fled the country.
Valentina’s uncle, Carlos Trespalacios, said: “She was a national and international DJ with a great future, she was hired by the best clubs in Bogota and the country and she also had the opportunity to go to other South American countries.”
