KENT, Wash. (AP) - The King County sheriff’s office is investigating after a woman’s body was found in a suitcase at a park in Kent, Washington, last month.

Detective Jason Houck said Tuesday that a man discovered a suitcase in a park near the Green River Bridge on May 27. Houck says the man opened the suitcase, found a body tucked inside and called police.

Houck says they’re investigating “suspicious circumstances” around the death. He says the King County medical examiner’s office hasn’t determined the cause of death.

Houck described it as “a full-on mystery.” She did not have obvious injuries and is believed to have died during the first week of May.

Authorities are seeking the public’s help in identifying her. She’s believed to be between 50 and 60 years old with a small build.
