A NOTEin the pocket of a model who was allegedly murdered had the name of her suspected killer scrawled on it, which led cops to his arrest.
Rebecca Landrith was found dead by the side of a road in Pennsylvania with multiple gunshot wounds to her head, neck and chest.
The 47-year-old was gunned down with 18 bullets before her suspected killer allegedly abused her corpse and left it near an interchange ramp in Union County.
Police believe the former fashion model was killed a few hours before she was found on Sunday morning.
In a statement, Union County coroner Dominick Adamo said 18 bullets were found during the autopsy and ruled her death as homicide.
She didn't have any identification on her when found, and so fingerprints and receipts were used by investigators to establish who she was, reports the Mirror.
Police say a note was found in the pocket of her leather jacket, bearing the name and contact details of her suspected killer – Tracy Rollins.
He was arrested on Wednesday some 250 miles away from the scene in Connecticut, and charged with criminal homicide and abuse of a corpse.
Cops found blood and shell casings in the 28-year-old's truck after he reportedly tried to clean his vehicle with bleach.
Mobile phone data and CCTV footage linked Rollins to the locations that appeared on receipts Rebecca had on her.
Rebecca's brother George Landrith told PennLive that she had been estranged from the family for around five years, but they were "relieved" Rollins had been arrested.
"It doesn’t ease the sense of loss," he sad.
"Her family loved her dearly.
"None of this brings her back. It is important she receives justice."
She was born in Alexandria, Virginia, and was the youngest of five siblings, he said.
Rebecca went on to become a professional model and was a finalist for Miss Manhattan in 2014.
According to her biography on iStudio, she was also an "accomplished violinist" and described herself and "bubbly and easy going".
Rebecca wrote on the page: "I adore fashion and the industry and am a warm weather person with a warm heart.
"I have worked with some really great photographers and fantastic people in this industry.
"I love clothes and have a great wardrobe to style myself and bring to shoots.
"I know high fashion labels and have fabulous shoes with all my outfits."
She added that she was "highly educated" and had "worked in the field of law".
