Luggage jammed full of human remains was found on a Seattle beach Friday — a chilling discovery that appears to have been made by teens making videos on TikTok.
One of the bags was spotted on a shoreline, near the popular tourist attraction Pike’s Place Market, while another was found floating in the water, the Seattle Police Department said in a press release.
A video posted on TikTok the following morning shows several young people stumbling across a black suitcase on a rocky shoreline, and laughing — before they realize what’s inside.
“Something traumatic happened that changed my life,” TikTok user UghHenry writes in the caption of the video, which was posted Saturday morning along with the hashtags #crime #murder and #washington.
“We found this black suitcase. We were joking that maybe the suitcase would have money…[But] the smell was overwhelming,” it states.
The footage shows a girl walking over to the suitcase as a pal yells, “Open it! It stinks, yo!”
She then uses a stick to peer into the luggage, which contains a black plastic bag, before shooting the camera a fearful look.
After opening it, a second girl is shown in footage calling police, a caption of the video states.
Residents told local outlets they were spooked by the grisly discovery.
“I was stunned and shocked,” said John Rodie, a West Seattle resident, told the local station KING-TV. “It’s frightening to think that there’s someone out there that would do something like that.”
The Seattle Police Department didn’t immediately respond to the Post’s request for information Sunday.
