The scene of the discovery in daylight.
The partially decomposed body of a young man in his mid-20's has been found in a suitcase that was recovered from a river. Lothian and Borders
detectives are investigating the find in Edinburgh, Scotland.
A police spokesperson said: "Following intelligence from two sources, police recovered a body from the water at the Shore at Leith. The body was
taken to the city mortuary and a post-mortem is expected to be carried out later."
Police believe to know who the young man is and the death is being looked upon as "suspicious". A formal identification will take place once
relatives have been contacted.
