Man ‘traveled 400 miles on Greyhound bus with DISMEMBERED and foul smelling body of woman in three suitcases'
A MAN traveled 400 miles on a Greyhound bus carrying suitcases filled with a woman's chopped up body, police say.
The dismembered body parts were found by the man's family after they noticed a "foul smell" coming from the three heavy bags.
He had reportedly traveled from Kentucky to Markham, Illinois, when the remains were discovered on Tuesday, CBS 2 reported.
According to Markham police Chief Terry White, the family did not know what was in the bags that were in their home for several days.
They started to suspect something suspicious after the man did not unpack and guarded the suitcases.
"There were some early reports of a foul odor coming from the bags," White said.
Police later identified the body parts to belong to a woman.
The family were able to open one of the bags after the man left the house to go a public library.
Once they discovered the remains, they called immediately the police.
According to police, the remains are the result of a crime they believe happened in Kentucky.
CBS 2 reporter Jermont Terry said the body could be related to a woman reported missing from Louisville last week.
"I went to the store, and by the time I went to the neighborhood store, came back, that's when I saw the yellow tape from the crime scene," said David Scott, the family's neighbor.
"I knew something was bad that happened then."
"You see stuff like this on TV," Scott said.
"You don't see stuff like this from your across-the-street neighbor."
According to CBS 2, investigators from Markham, the FBI and Lousiville are looking into the case.
The man has not been charged with any crime but remains in custody as of Tuesday night.
