Canadian police find human remains in suitcase

TORONTO (AP) — Police in Canada have found human remains in a suitcase in Lake Ontario off Toronto.

Toronto Police spokesman Tony Vella says two boaters found the suitcase Wednesday and brought it to shore, where police opened it. An autopsy has not yet been scheduled.

Vella says he doesn’t think the case is related to the woman’s torso that was found at the base of Niagara Falls last week. He doesn’t know if it is linked to a case in Toronto last month where human remains were found in waterways on either side of the city.

The cases have received extra attention since porn actor Luka Magnotta was accused of dismembering a Chinese student in Montreal and mailing his body parts to political parties and a school earlier this year.
