Roach Species? Possible American Cockroach? - Periplaneta fuliginosa

Roach Species? Possible American Cockroach? - Periplaneta fuliginosa
Burlington, Alamance County, North Carolina, USA
October 14, 2015
It likes to stay hidden and when spooked it was pretty fast. Before it molted, I had it about a month and a half and it didn't seem to eat much. My roommate caught it in the bathroom in the middle of the night while I was at work. I am curious on what species it is. I believe this is the final molt as it looks different than before. The brown roach next to it is just its husk.

Sorry, will need to see a picture of it when it has darkened up
In order to give you an ID.

 
Alright I hope this pic helps
Alright I hope this pic helps. :) She has a pretty dark brown head shield now. So now I feel like she may be a wood roach since it looks different from the American Cockroach. I hope you can identify it so I can give it better care. :)
