San Francisco police say a suitcase found in the South of Market neighborhood Wednesday afternoon contained dismembered body parts.
The suitcase was found after a caller reported a suspicious package near 11th and Mission streets at 4:14 p.m., according to police.
A medical examiner confirmed the remains are human, but police said it was unclear late Wednesday if all the remains belong to one victim.
