'Full-on mystery': Woman's body found in suitcase in Kent (komonews.com)
Detective Jason Houck said Tuesday that a man discovered a suitcase in a park along Frager Road South near the Green River Bridge on May 27. Houck says the man opened the suitcase, found a body tucked inside and called police.
Houck says they're investigating "suspicious circumstances" around the death. He says the King County medical examiner's office hasn't determined the cause of death.
Houck described it as "a full-on mystery." She did not have obvious injuries and is believed to have died during the first week of May.

The woman was about 5-foot-4 and 106 pounds with shoulder-length black hair with gray streaks.
She wore full dentures but none were recovered; was wearing a purple short-sleeved shirt with flowers, and an adult diaper.
She had no scars, marks or tattoos, according to the sheriff’s office.
She had no injuries and was properly nourished, but had cirrhosis of the liver based on autopsy information.

For some odd reason and as I've previously stated, body-in-suitcase/torso-in-trunk -type crimes wield a possibly unhealthy hold on my imagination, possibly resulting from having first read of them in re: a couple Brighton UK murders a very long time ago, ones which I read about decades after their occurrence whilst developing an interest in true crime writing.
Hope they ID and solve this. Justice is always interesting, a healthy thing to see accomplished.

Thanks for posting this. I tried to, but I guess I don't have thread posting permissions yet. The comments on KOMO's facebook post about this seemed to point to her possibly being a homeless person that was seen around the area. This isn't too far from the King County courthouse and jail. It's possible that she had been released from there and didn't make it much farther. I really hope they find out who she is and who would do something so horrible.

Another body has been found in a suitcase in King County, WA, but doesn't appear to be connected to Kent woman:
SEATAC, Wash. - The King County Sheriff's Office is investigating after a decomposed body was found Monday morning in a suitcase outside a garbage bin at a SeaTac apartment complex.
Deputies and investigators responded to the scene, the Abbey Ridge apartment complex in the 3000 block of South 204th Street, at about 8:30 a.m. after receiving a report that a body had been found.
Few details were immediately available. Sgt. Stan Seo of the King County Sheriff's Office said the horrific discovery was made by a maintenance worker.
He said initial reports that the suitcase was found inside a garbage truck were in error.
It was the second time in two months that a body has been found in a suitcase in south King County. In the previous incident, a woman's body was found inside a suitcase at a Kent park.
Seo said there doesn't appear to be a connection between the two cases.
