Body found in suitcase in Washington state for second time
Police in the city of SeaTac, Washington, said on Monday they had responded to reports of a body found in a suitcase, the second time in six weeks a corpse has been found stuffed into luggage in the area.
The body was discovered at an apartment complex in SeaTac, home to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, by a worker at about 8:30 a.m., King County Sheriff’s spokesman Stan Seo said on Twitter.
Seo said detectives were on their way to the scene.
In mid-June law enforcement officials asked for the public’s help in solving the mystery behind a woman’s body found in a suitcase and left near a river outside of Seattle.
That suitcase, discovered on May 27 near the Green River Bridge in Kent, contained the body of a white woman believed to be in her 50s or 60s who likely died the first week of May, the King County Sheriff said in a statement at the time.
The woman had no injuries and it was unclear if she was killed or died of natural causes. An autopsy found she was properly nourished but suffered from Cirrhosis of the liver.
