      You'd be better off smoking your bong than making pathetic attempts at humor.

    The killer sounds like a real bright guy? Did anyone check to see if he left luggage tags on the bag handle?

    I don't know much about this sort of thing, but it would appear that she wasn't dismembered, according to news reports. But, he must have broken almost every bone in her body to get her to fit, even if it was a very large piece of luggage and she was a small sized person. How dreadful. I suppose the leakage is what alerted people to take notice of the suitcase. Or, if she was left sitting around somewhere for very long, decomposition would very naturally start to occur. Rather a bizarre way to get rid of a corpse in my opinion.

    Boy, and I thought it was hard getting that last peice of underwear in my luggage without surpassing the 50lb. weight restriction. How in the world do you fit a full grown adult in a modern luggage? They don't make those large ones anymore....and even so I still can't figure out how it could be done? I guess when your evil like this fool, things just fall in place. LITERALLY!!
