Two people have been arrested in connection with a woman whose body was discovered in a duffel bag in Golden Gate Park in August, San Francisco police said Thursday.
Officers responded to the area of the park near Fulton and 22nd Street on August 13 and located an unresponsive woman who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Her body was found at the north end of the park on a Sunday evening, as the Outside Lands music festival was wrapping up. She was later identified as Kelly Koike, 37, a resident of San Francisco.
The county medical examiner initially deemed his death suspicious, so San Francisco homicide detectives took over the case.
Police now say the medical examiner later ruled the cause of death as “undetermined.”
Police have identified two suspects in the case, 26-year-old Alexander Madden and 33-year-old Emilia Beckhusen. Both were arrested on November 2 on suspicion of illegal disposal of human remains and conspiracy.
Although arrests have been made, the investigation remains open and active, according to police. Anyone with information is asked to call SFPD’s 24-hour tip line at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and start the text message with SFPD.
