TROY, N.Y. (AP) - An autopsy has confirmed that a body found inside a suitcase in the Hudson River near Albany was that of a 21-year-old Troy woman who went missing on Nov. 22.

The Times Union of Albany reports (https://bit.ly/1Vu407e ) that Noel Alkaramla’s body was pulled from the river on Wednesday. The body was identified Thursday.
