POLICE continue to investigate the death of a San Francisco woman whose body was found in a duffel bag close to a music festival over the weekend.
On Monday, Kelly Koike, 37, was identified as the woman found the day before near the three-day Outside Lands concert at Golden Gate Park, according to The San Francisco Standard.
Koike’s body was discovered around 7:24 pm in a large duffel bag at Fulton Street and 22nd Avenue.
The bag was first spotted by a dog walker in the area.
Authorities have reportedly described her death as suspicious and no other information has been made available.
Additionally, no arrests have been made.
“She had no many aspirations,” her mother, Roya Koike, told The Standard.
She revealed that her daughter graduated from Castro Valley High in 2004 and later attended culinary school in San Francisco.
The mother also detailed that Koike suffered from multiple mental illnesses including schizophrenia, catatonia and bipolar disorder.
In recent years, the 37-year-old was reportedly evicted from a San Francisco residential hotel and ultimately lived on the street.
Koike’s mother told several local outlets that she offered to help her daughter and house her as long as she took prescribed psychiatric medications.
Roya Koike has described her daughter as someone with a “really big heart,” and told the San Francisco Chronicle that she was “herself, we were best buddies.”
It was not immediately clear if Koike had attended any part of the music festival over the weekend.
Koike’s death is currently being investigated by the San Francisco Police Department’s Homicide Detail.
Police have reportedly said they do not believe there is any reason for the local community to feel threatened.
