    Prosecutors said all possible leads were being examined. Prosecutors, police and criminologists were all sent to the airport upon the grisly discovery, they said.

    The owner of the bag was a Chinese national, according to news agency Mediafax.

    This isn't Bucharest's first discovery of body parts in luggage. In the 1990s, the bodies of four Chinese people were found inside suitcases, two in a car and two floating in a lake, according to AFP.
