Melvin Martin Jr, 30, traveled on a Kentucky Greyhound bus to see his parents, south of Chicago, with their luggage.
The trip lasted over five hours, ending with her being taken in by family and driven to her home in the suburb of Markham.
The family made the grim discovery after their son’s behavior began to raise suspicion.
Police said he was accused of leaking an indictment and faces an extradition hearing for Kentucky.
Local Police Chief Terry White said
Local Police Chief Terry White said the family began to wonder when, after a few days, the man hadn’t packed his bags.
“There were a few initial reports of an unpleasant smell coming from the bags,” White said.
When the man went to the library, a relative decided to look at the bags and find parts of the body.
Police then found the woman’s head and other remains in the other luggage.
The victim was from Louisville and his death resulted in a domestic attack, police said.
The woman’s body was reportedly dismembered at least a month ago.
In Louisville, police were also told of the location of other body parts found in a park.
“He indicated that, grotesque as it might sound, he still wanted to be with her, at least in part,” White said.
His name was not released as police informed his family.
