SAN FRANCISCO — A 59-year-old man was arrested early Saturday in connection with the grisly discovery of body parts in a suitcase left on a San Francisco sidewalk.
Mark Andrus was booked for murder, San Francisco Police Department spokeswoman Grace Gatpandan said.
Police were alerted to his location on Friday night by someone who called a tip line.
Gatpandan said the investigation is ongoing and encouraged people to continue to call the tip line.
On Friday police released three photos of a man they called a person of interest.
The dismembered body was discovered Wednesday when police where called to the South of Market district in San Francisco. Other body parts were found in a trash can less than a block from the main crime scene.
Police have not disclosed what body parts were in the suitcase and trash can.
