Man arrested in deaths of 2 found in suitcase on beach

SEATTLE (AP) — A 62-year-old man has been arrested for the slayings of two people after their remains were found in a suitcase on a West Seattle beach. The Seattle Times reports the man was arrested at his Burien residence Wednesday afternoon, questioned and booked into the King County Jail. Police did not release any other immediate information. A group of teens doing something of a scavenger hunt in June filmed the suitcase that had washed up near shore at Duwamish Head. They opened it while recording for a TikTok post and found plastic bags. Authorities identified the remains of the two people found inside several bags as 35-year-old Jessica Lewis and 27-year-old Austin Wenner.
