Illustration for article titled Suitcase Stuffed With Human Remains Found On San Francisco Sidewalk

A "suspicious package" report yesterday afternoon led San Francisco police to a wheeled suitcase filled with dismembered human body parts in the city's South of Market neighborhood, just blocks from the headquarters of Twitter, Uber, and other high-tech companies.


CNN reported on the grisly discovery:

"We do have people of interest that homicide investigators are speaking to," Officer Grace Gatpandan said. Detectives are also reviewing surveillance camera footage and officers are looking for a suspect. She declined to identify the suspect.

The Los Angeles Times reported that remains were also found at three locations within a three-block radius. Asked about the reporting, a police spokeswoman told CNN there are no updates.

There were other items around the suitcase, Gatpandan said. The gender and age of the person were unclear.

KGO TV is reporting that the suitcase contained "a torso," and has some insight from a resident as to why the suitcase was left at the high-traffic intersection of 11th and Mission Streets:

"The person who did it has got to want to be caught, this is a camera gulch right here," said one man.
