A 21-year-old Illinois woman who had been missing for nearly two months was discovered dead—tied up, wrapped in a sheet, and stuffed in a shopping cart on Chicago’s Southwest Side just one week before her 22nd birthday.

The remains of Rosa Chacon, who was last seen getting into a ride-hailing vehicle in January, were located earlier this month and positively identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office, a private investigating firm announced.

According to a private investigator who says he’s close to the family, Chacon was seen getting into an Uber at approximately 10:40 pm on Jan. 18 in the 2800 block of St. Louis Avenue that was heading to the 2400 block of Western Avenue in Chicago.

The shopping cart that Chacon was left inside of was located in an alley in the 2300 block of West 24th Place, according to a report from Chicago ABC affiliate WLS-TV. Her remains of her were sent to the medical examiner for an autopsy to determine the manner and cause of her death.

Chacon’s family told WLS that she was not the one who ordered the Uber that picked her up on Jan. 18.

“She said, ‘I’ll be back mom. I got the Uber ride there and the Uber ride back, ‘that’s what she told me, ”her mother de ella, who is also named Rosa Chacon, told the station. “I don’t know how they have a heart to do something like that.”
