DeCarol Deloney-Cain never missed a day of work in 28 years as an international flight attendant with United Airlines. So when she failed to show for an overseas flight on Sunday, the airline called her family.

On Monday, her body was found inside the trunk of her car, abandoned in a remote, wooded area of Gary, Ind. She had been stabbed multiple times, her body wrapped in plastic. Her body was unidentifiable, and her identity wasn't released until Wednesday.

"I just can't imagine why someone, anybody, would do something like this to my sister," said Todd Deloney, the victim's brother. "I don't know - I can't think of anyone, anyone that had beef with my sister."

The 54-year-old Crown Point woman had been stabbed multiple times, according to the Lake County Coroner, and had blunt force trauma to her head. Her family said Deloney-Cain was in the final stages of a divorce and had an order of protection against her husband.

"Right now, nobody is in custody. No persons of interest or anything like that yet," Gary Police Corporal Gabrielle King said.

Detectives are working on a timeline in the murder case. They want to find out who was the last to see her alive.

Deloney-Cain's family is survived by three children and a grandchild.

"All I can say is more prayer for the soul who did this. I don't know who or why," Deloney-Cain's son, Blake, said.

Deloney-Cain was last seen by her family last weekend during the Fourth of July holiday. She was driving a 2008, red Toyota Solara.
