The body found in a Chicago garage last week has been identified as the 26-year-old woman who was last seen May 25, according to the medical examiner.
Authorities identify her as Shantieya Smith.
Smith was found underneath a car in a garage on the 1800 block of South Central Park Avenue around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday. She was found unresponsive and was pronounced dead, police said. Witnesses said the body was badly decomposed but had red hair like Smith.
Tuesday dental records confirmed the body is Smith’s.
