Father arrested after Virginia toddler found dead in suitcase

Father of toddler found dead in suitcase in NJ was responsible for his infant son's death in Richmond in 2004

"We would like to hear from whomever may be caring for Te'Myah Plummer, probably a family member", Major Crimes Sergeant Frank Scarpa of Richmond Police said in March.

NY is now reporting that the girl's father, Travis Plummer, was arrested on April 19 in Puerto Rico. "We need to confirm that she is safe".

According to NBC New York, police say they believe that Te'Myah, found near train tracks in Jersey City, had been dead for multiple days before she was discovered.

Officers in New Jersey found Te'Myah dead and stuffed inside a pink suitcase on April 11, according to NorthJersey.com.

It's still not clear how the toddler died but the Hudson County prosecutor's office said Monday they believe she died outside of New Jersey.

The girl and her father had gone missing from Richmond, Virginia in March.

Suarez credited homicide detectives, the Port Authority Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation offices in Newark, Richmond, and San Juan, and Richmond Police Department with helping identify the child and arrest the father. The child's age was initially thought to be about 10 months, according to a preliminary medical examiner's report, but DNA testing at the FBI's lab in Quantico, Virginia, determined her age to be closer to 2.

Two-year-old Te'Myah Plummer was last seen by her family in August 2017.

Richmond investigators contacted New Jersey authorities after learning about the gruesome discovery there, the station reports.

Plummer is awaiting extradition and it's not known if he's retained a lawyer.

The woman, who remains unidentified, had up to five children in the house at the time.
