EUGENE, Ore. -A body, found in a suitcase discarded along a rural highway in Wisconsin, is that of a missing state of Oregon woman.

Walworth County investigators said dental records confirmed the body is that of Jenny Gamez, 21, of Cottage Grove, Oregon, who disappeared in 2012. Based on a criminal complaint, she would likely have been 19 when she died.

Cottage Grove police Cpl. Conrad Gagner told a television station his department is working with Wisconsin authorities on the case.

A former Wisconsin police officer was arrested last week and charged with hiding a corpse after two bodies were found in suitcases in Walworth County. A criminal complaint says 52-year-old Steven Zelich met the women online, killed them and hid their bodies for months.

The other body was identified earlier as Laura Simonson, 37, of Farmington, Minnesota.

A Walworth County prosecutor said he expects homicide charges to be filed where the women were killed.
