September 10, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

A man was being held on a parole violation while police in Peru investigate the death of his Internet bride, whose body was found in a suitcase fished out of the ocean.

Peruvian police consider William Trickett Smith Jr. a suspect in the death and are seeking, through Interpol, to bring him to Peru, authorities said.

Smith, 26, of Harrisburg met university student Jana Gomez Menendez de Smith, 21, a Peru native, over the Internet last year and married her in March, the woman's family said.
