SEATTLE (KING) -- Family members are urging witnesses to come forward in the case of the gruesome slayings of a South King County couple whose remains were found in suitcases that washed ashore in West Seattle on June 19.
A group of young people who made a TikTok video along the West Seattle shoreline said that they found the suitcase.
Jessica Lewis, a 35-year-old mother of four from Federal Way, and her boyfriend Austin “Cash” Wenner, 27, were identified last week as the victims in the suitcases.
KIRO-TV reports the King County Medical Examiner determined that both Lewis and Wenner had been shot days before their remains were found.
The deaths have been ruled homicides, according to a spokesman for the King County Medical Examiner's Office.
On Monday a Seattle police spokesperson said the case is “under very active investigation,” but would not say if detectives had identified any suspects.
