Manila - Philippine police are investigating a gruesome find at Manila international airport's parking lot: the body of a woman stuffed in a suitcase.

A police officer at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport says the woman looks like a Filipino and appears to have been strangled to death before being crammed in a fetal position inside the luggage.

Officer Joselito Mutya says it could not immediately be determined if the woman's name is the same as that on the bag's identity tag.

A security guard found the luggage early Wednesday on a tree-lined area outside the view of airport security cameras.

The bag was opened after bomb experts and a sniffer dog found no trace of explosives or drugs inside.
