Koike’s body was discovered at around 7.24 pm in a large duffel bag at Fulton Street and 22nd Avenue, according to The San Francisco Standard. 

The bag was first spotted by a dog walker in the area. 

Authorities have described her death as suspicious and no other information has been made available. 

Additionally, no arrests have been made and cops have not yet released her cause of death.

How she ended up inside a duffel bag is also unclear.

“She had no many aspirations,” her mother, Roya Koike, told The Standard. 

She said that her daughter graduated from Castro Valley High in 2004 and later attended culinary school in San Francisco. 

The mother said that Koike suffered from multiple mental illnesses and had experienced tough times in recent years.

The 37-year-old was reportedly evicted from a San Francisco residential hotel and ended up living 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 her medications.

Roya described Kelly as a kind soul with a “really big heart.”

She told the San Francisco Chronicle that she was always “herself” and that the two “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 being investigated by the San Francisco Police Department’s homicide unit.

Police have said that they do not believe there is any reason for the local community to feel threatened.
