Police in New York are still searching for a man who was videotaped dragging a suitcase that had been stuffed with the body of woman who had been strangled.      

 

Police on Thursday identified the victim as 28-year-old Betty Williams, of the Bronx. Her body was found inside the suitcase outside an East Harlem building shortly after midnight Wednesday.

The medical examiner ruled the woman was murdered and the cause of death was "neck compression."    

 

Police say a passer-by rummaging through the trash outside the building on East 114th Street found the suitcase and called 911.      

 

The building is about a block away from Rao's Restaurant, a notable eatery in the neighborhood.
