A mum-of-four was dismembered and stuffed in a suitcase with her boyfriend – before a pair of schoolkids stumbled on the remains while making a TikTok video.
Detectives say Jessica Lewis, 25, and Austin Winner, 27, were shot dead before being chopped up and crammed into a series of bin liners.
The bags were then zipped into the case, which was discarded on Seattle’s Alki Beach on June 19.
The grim discovery was made by TikTok user UghHenry as he filmed a video with a pal.
A caption reads: “Something traumatic happened that changed my life.
“We found this black suitcase. We were joking that maybe the suitcase would have money…[But] the smell was overwhelming.
The chilling clip then shows the pair laughing before it dawns on them that the suitcase might contain something sinister.
The caption adds that they felt “a little scared” and “nervous”.
It then cuts to another girl calling 911, before detectives arrive on the scene.
A GoFundMe page to raise money for for a reward claims Austin died from a single gunshot wound to the torso, while Jessica was shot several times.
Jessica’s aunt Gina Jaschke wrote: “Jessica & Cash were good -hearted people.
“She leaves behind 4 beautiful children. Their parents and family are heartbroken beyond words. Along with countless friends and loved ones.”
Gina started the fundraiser on Monday in the hopes of raising $10,000 for a reward leading to the arrest and conviction of the murderers.
So far, the campaign has raised $1,200.
Gina added: “Jessica was like the most caring person. They were just nice normal people. Nobody deserves what happened to them.”
A Seattle Police spokesman said the case remains under “very active investigation” – but no arrests have been made.
