Police have identified a woman who was found dead in a Wayne County motel.

The Goldsboro Police Department said Monday that 31-year-old Nicole McDonald, of Mullica Hill, N.J., was found dead in a room at the Econo Lodge on Corporate Drive.

Officers discovered McDonald on March 16, but it took until May 9 to positively identify her, police said.

Police said McDonald was picked up in Camden County, N.J., by a truck driver the day before she was found dead in Goldsboro.

There is no word on a cause of death. The investigation is ongoing.
