Police in San Francisco made a gruesome discovery in a suitcase that was left on the street Wednesday afternoon. 

Trace Gallagher reported on "The Real Story" (video above) that a large suitcase filled with body parts was discovered on 11th Street in the South Market area of the city.

He said that police searching the area also found more dismembered body parts in a three-block radius from where the suitcase was found.

"Someone who walked by said that it smelled like dead rats," Gallagher remarked.

The San Francisco medical examiner confirmed that the body parts were human.

Gallagher explained that it's unclear at the moment if all of the body parts belong to the same victim and that police won't disclose the race, age, or gender of the victim.
