Some TikTok Users Discover Human Body Remains Stuffed In A Suitcase
TikTok users filmed the moment they unexpectedly discovered human remains inside a suitcase that was dumped on a waterfront in Washington state.
The young people who say they found the first bag and alerted authorities posted video footage from the shocking encounter at Duwamish Head on Saturday.
Seattle Police announced the discovery of two items of luggage that contained a dead body on Friday night.
‘Something traumatic happened that changed my life,’ TikTok user UghHenry wrote in the caption of the video. The caption further reads:
We found this black suitcase. We were joking that maybe the suitcase would have money, but the smell was overwhelming.
In the clip, the amateur videographer is heard telling one girl: ‘Open it! It stinks, yo.’
They are heard laughing before realizing that a black bag stuffed inside the suitcase may contain something sinister. The caption states they felt a ‘little scared’ and ‘nervous’.
The clip then cuts to another girl calling 911 and authorities arriving at the scene on the 1100 block of Alki Avenue.
Police said they received a call about a suspicious bag on the beach near the water on Friday afternoon. They have not confirmed who contacted them.
Another bag was found nearby in the water on the 1100 block of Alki Avenue SW, according to the Seattle Police Department.
Investigators noticed that the bags contained human remains, prompting them to summon detectives to the area. The remains were scheduled to be taken to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office for further analysis.
The people in the video only learned that it was human remains after checking the news later on. The King County Medical Examiner is working to identify the remains and determine a cause of death.
