Lt. Mike Stasko, head of the San Francisco Police Department's homicide division, confirmed the discovery was being treated as a homicide or a questionable death. We have a body in a suitcase, he told KTVU. Right now, what we are doing is the body is being transported back to the medical examiners office....You never get used to something like this. Someone went ahead and put the body in a suitcase and hoped that it was going to go down in the Bay. Stasko said the body had been on the rocks for at least an hour. The gruesome discovery was made by Margarito Real, who found the suitcase floating in the water near the Embarcadero. There was a suitcase floating in the water; my niece saw it first, Real told KTVU. We looked at it for a few minutes and then started walking We told one of the people who was working at the pier that there was a suitcase floating in the water It just looked suspicious to me. Real then ran to a nearby waterfront fire station and alerted authorities. Firefighters quickly responded to the scene and climbed down to the rocks to examine the suitcase. He (a firefighter) tried to pull it, but it was heavy, Real said. He opened it and I think I saw a leg It made my skin crawl. They told me to take my niece away It was a horrible feeling .Fortunately, my niece did not see anything. The remains were left in the suitcase and it was taken away to the medical examiners office.
