We continue to update you on the gruesome story of a body found in a suitcase in Egg Harbor Township.  The woman has now been identified, and had been reported missing by a family member since October…..


Tara Rogers-Alicea was 30 years old, and from Gloucester County.


An investigation is continuing into how a Gloucester County mother of three wound up dead in a suitcase dumped in Egg Harbor Township.

Tara Rogers-Alicea’s mother reported her missing to Clayton police Oct. 22.

While that’s where her family lives, she was known to frequent Atlantic City and did run into some trouble there, court records show.

Rogers-Alicea, who would have turned 31 on Friday, was arrested July 17 and brought to the Atlantic County jail on a warrant out of Gloucester County. The next day, she was transferred to the Camden County jail.

On Sept. 15, she failed to appear in Gloucester County on a heroin charge. A bench warrant was issued, records show.

Rogers-Alicea had three daughters, ages 12, 9 and 8.
