Police have identified the remains of two people, whose dismembered bodies were stuffed into a suitcase and discovered by teens on a viral TikTokvideo in Seattle last month.
Seattle Police also found another bag in the water, also containing dismembered human remains.
Authorities have identified the two victims as Jessica Lewis, 35, and Austin Wenner, 27. They were likely shot dead on June 10, the medical examiner said, based on the state of the bodies.
Seattle Police Detective Mark Jamieson confirmed that the TikTok video was not released until the next day.
Police said there is no indication the teens were involved in the killings and dismissed the idea they'd staged the video.
In the TikTok video, which has been viewed millions of times and liked more than 4.5 million times on the app, one of the teens stumbles on rocks as she steps away from the suitcase she opened.

When they opened it, they found a black trash bag and when they opened it, they were immediately hit with a foul smell that overwhelmed them.

Lewis's aunt, Gina Jaschke, expressed her disbelief Tuesday regarding the horrific discovery, according to Q13 Fox.
The couple were "good-hearted people", according to a GoFundMe launched by Jaschke to raise money for a reward to aid in the investigation.
