CROWN POINT, Ind. -- A woman whose body was found in a car trunk in Gary has been identified as a missing flight attendant.

Lake County Deputy Coroner George Deliopoulos says 54-year-old DeCarol Deloney-Cain of Crown Point was positively identified through serial numbers on her breast implants.

An autopsy determined she died from blunt force trauma to her head and multiple stab wounds to her chest. Her body was found Monday wrapped in material in the trunk of her car in a wooded area in Gary, 12 miles north of Crown Point.

Deloney-Cain's son, Blake Deloney, told The (Munster) Times ( ) that United Airlines contacted him Sunday when his mother didn't report for work. An airline spokesman says Deloney-Cain served as a flight attendant on international flights out of Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.
