The case surfaced Wednesday morning when a passerby spotted the suitcase in downtown San Diego, near the 1300 block of 7th Avenue and A Street. Police said the man who lives in the area saw the suitcase on the ground and walked over to check it out. He knew something was terribly wrong when he spotted human hair peeking out of the zipper of the luggage. h/t nbcsandiego
