Father had toddler's body for months before dumping it in suitcase: prosecutors 07/12/2018 9:44 am PDT Comments WPIX via WPIX JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- (WPIX) -- Prosecutors say a man charged with dumping his dead toddler's body near train tracks had had the body for months. They made the assertion Wednesday at a bail hearing for Travis Plummer. The Richmond, Virginia man was arrested in Puerto Rico in April, a week after the girl's body was found in a suitcase. Authorities say Plummer took 23-month-old Te'Myah Layauna Plummer from her mother in Virginia last fall and traveled to New Jersey with the decomposing body wrapped inside a suitcase. They believe he left the suitcase in a friend's garage in Jersey City, and dumped it near the tracks after police came to the friend's house in March.
