College Girl murdered in suitcase Bus stop CCTV footage
An 18-year-old cold case may have been solved after police brought first-degree murder charges over the death of College Girl, whose remains were found in a suitcase at bus stop.
Melonie, 17, was only identified this morning after police arrested her biological father Evertone Biddersingh, 56, and stepmother Elaine Biddersingh, 50, on March 5 in Welland, Ontario.
On September 1, 1994, police on patrol discovered a body in a burning suitcase left in an industrial area north of Toronto. The victim’s body was curled in the fetal position and her fingerprints, handprints and footprints were burned off.
The only thing they could be certain of was that the female once had curly, black hair.
It appeared as if the victim had been killed elsewhere and her remains put in a green suitcase, dumped and set on fire.

A forensic pathologist said that the young woman had 21 broken bones, consistent with a car accident or fall from a height, according to CTV News.
The injuries were estimated to have taken place up to six months before Miss Biddersingh died and she was not treated, leaving her unable to move and in constant pain.
According to Detective Sgt Steve Ryan of the Toronto police homicide squad, the break in the case came with ‘a single phone call’ from a ‘person of conscience’.
