The volunteers reportedly tried to lift the suitcase out of the water, but it was too heavy. They eventually unzipped the suitcase and discovered the body, which seemed to be stuffed in a fetal position, according to KTVU.
On Wednesday, Nov. 15, police announced that the victim was identified as 23-year-old Gabriel Raymundo. Officers have asked the public’s help in gathering any information about the victim and the circumstances surrounding his death but confirmed they are investigating this as a homicide case.
Police are offering a reward of up to $10,000 for any tips leading to an arrest.
