    Police responding to a suspicious package call in SoMa at 11th Street between Market and Mission streets discovered a suitcase stuffed with human body parts, the case is being treated as a homicide. Officers opened the suitcase to find the body parts just after 4 p.m. and subsequently discovered more remains nearby. The suitcase is being described as roller-type luggage.

    Investigators have a rough suspect description but that police are not releasing any other details because the investigation is ongoing.

    The roller-type suitcase had been left next to a pile of garbage and debris at 11th and Market streets. More remains were found in the surrounding blocks. "It is unclear at this time if all the remains belong to one victim."

    This sounds horrible, but I've always had a hankering for cases involving torsos and suitcases (or bin liners). Hope the suspect thing pans out and justice is swift.

    I find these cases intriguing myself, this one even more so because I've walked (and still do, on occasion) that area frequently. Mind-boggling.

    Exactly. These aren't impersonal drive-bys, by any means.

    Thanks, there is more info in the LATimes article than in the local SFGate article. And, while I recognize that there is not much humor in body parts in suitcases, I did find this statement rather funny: "If it is a single person, it would make the 10th homicide in San Francisco this year, police said."

    That means it could be the 11th and/or 12th as well. Or, maybe more.

    Person of interest sought in San Francisco body parts case

    SFGate
    By Henry Lee and Evan Sernoffsky Updated 12:12 pm, Thursday, January 29, 2015


    "San Francisco police are looking for a “person of interest” after investigators reviewed surveillance footage and spoke to witnesses following the gruesome discovery of a suitcase full of body parts Wednesday in the city’s South of Market area, officials said Thursday."​

    There is also a CBS video at the above link titled: "Dismembered Body Parts Found In SF SoMa, Packed In Suitcase On Sidewalk" - :)

    I saw that! Oy! Why did they even bother, it's like someone got caught up in presenting that statistics and couldn't let go. And is that unintentional play on words "Body Parts Case"!
