Woman’s remains found in luggage of man visiting relatives


MARKHAM, Ill. (AP) — A 30-year-old man visiting relatives in suburban Chicago from Kentucky has been arrested after a woman’s remains were found in several bags of luggage. Police say  Melvin Martin Jr. caught a Greyhound bus from Louisville to Chicago over the past few days and was picked up there by relatives who took him to their home in Markham. While the man was at a public library Tuesday, his mother allegedly opened one of the bags and found body parts. Police later found more remains in the other bags. Police say the victim was from Louisville and her death resulted from a domestic assault.  More remains were discovered in Kentucky from the same victim.  More charges against Martin are pending in Illinois and Kentucky.
