Manchini was from Greensburg, and her remains were just identified after her body was found stuffed in a suitcase near a Georgia interstate three years ago.

Members of her family said they are desperate to find out who is responsible.

The family has set up a GoFundMe to help cover the funeral costs for Jessica Manchini.

Manchini's family said she traveled around the country before moving to Georgia. Her family reported her missing back in 2014.

"I did have this feeling that either she was going to be found in the woods or in some type of body of water," said Maria Caldwell, Manchini's mother.

Investigators said the suitcase Manchini was found in had faded ink on it. Officials said it was too faded to read, but in June, new technology became available allowing police to enhance the traces of ink. Police were able to make out a partial name and address that led them to Manchini.

There have been no arrests in the case.
