If you’re all over TikTok, you may have seen the shocking video late last month by ughhenry in which a group of kids in Seattle discover a dead body.
If not, here’s the breakdown: On June 19, the young friends (pictured above) use the app Randonautica to lead them on a random adventure. It leads them to a pier on Alki Beach, where they find a suitcase washed up on shore. Hoping there might be a secret stash of money or something inside, they open it up — only to find it full of plastic bags and having what they described as an “overwhelming” stink.
Thankfully they got responsible from that point on, calling the police to be safe. And good thing, too, because this time the worst case scenario was exactly what was going on. Authorities found two dead bodies shoved into suitcases.
Now the remains have officially been identified as 35-year-old Jessica Lewis and her boyfriend Austin Wenner, also known as Cash, age 27. The couple were reportedly together for eight years. Lewis was a mother of four…
The King County Medical Examiner’s office has released the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the torso for Wenner and “multiple gunshot wounds” for Lewis. Obviously this case is being treated by Seattle Police as a homicide case. But they aren’t the only ones investigating…
Jessica’s aunt, Gina Jaschke, started a GoFundMe to raise money for a reward for more information. She says in the fundraiser:
“Jessica & Cash were good-hearted people. She leaves behind 4 beautiful children. Their parents and family are heartbroken beyond words. Along with countless friends and loved ones. Somebody knows something, and whoever helps solved this case will receive the money raised for their reward. PLEASE CALL Seattle Police Department’s Violent Crimes tip line at 206-233-5000.”
As of this writing, the reward is up to over $1400. Speaking to local news station KIRO 7, Jaschke explains her motivations, saying:
“What I can do is keep this alive in everybody’s mind. Somebody knows something. Somebody saw something, they might be scared to say anything. You know what? The smart one of the bunch is going to go and turn themselves in. Because no jury is going to have any sympathy for any of them.”
“I want somebody to pay for what they’ve done. And if it brings any kind of solace to my family, I’ll do it. Because they’re just devastated.”
We can’t even imagine. #RIP
