INDIANAPOLIS (WXIN) -- Police are investigating after human remains were found in a suitcase in the Bean Creek neighborhood on Indy’s near southeast side Monday.
The discovery occurred around 1:30 p.m. on Memorial Day. Two people were walking through the area when they found a suitcase in the creek. Police say they opened the suitcase out of curiosity and found human remains.
Homicide units, crime scene units, and the coroner’s office responded to the scene.
The coroner will take necessary steps to identify the person.
This is considered a death investigation, but the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says they are not able to call the death suspicious at this time.
“Just the fact that having a body in a suitcase is suspicious enough, how the person died, I don’t know,” IMPD spokesperson Genae Cook said. “Regardless of how the person died, nobody deserves to be put inside a suitcase.”
IMPD says the human remains don’t belong to an infant or a baby. It is unknown if this is connected to the Najah Farrell case or any other case.
