Police identify the body of the woman found near the Bronx River Parkway

A family's worst fear has come true after police released the identity of the woman found last week near the Bronx River Parkway.

Police have identified the woman as Sorangel Cabrera of Riverdale. When police found Cabrera she had no identification and had several gunshot wounds to her head and face.

Her family had reported her missing and was devastated when they learned that the body was indeed Sorangels. Cabrera's father says she was a single mother who was full of life. He says the last time he spoke to her was the night she went missing.

Police are now looking for Cabrera's boyfriend, although they are not calling him a suspect at this point.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-577-TIPS.
