A suitcase containing a human torso was found in Lake Ontario, but police can’t confirm if it’s connected to the slaying and dismemberment of a woman in the Toronto area last month.
The suitcase was found floating about 2½ kilometres from shore by two boaters. They towed it to shore at Bluffer’s Park, in the city’s east end. Police examined the contents and confirmed they were badly decomposed human remains.
A postmortem examination is scheduled to take place on Thursday.
Police said it’s too early to say whether Wednesday’s discovery is related to the killing of Guang Hua Liu, whose body parts were discovered in east-end Toronto and Mississauga, Ont., in August. Liu’s torso was not recovered by police.
