Dutch woman arrested after dead babies found in suitcases
A 25-year-old Dutch woman has been arrested for allegedly killing at least three of her babies over the last eight years, hiding their remains in the attic, police said Friday.
"A 25-year-old woman from Nij Beets (in the northern Friesland province) was arrested on Wednesday ... on suspicion of having murdered at least three babies," prosecuting official Annete Bronsvoort told a press conference.
Police on Thursday found suitcases in the attic of the woman's home, where she lives with her parents.
Initial forensic investigations suggest that "three of the suitcases each contain the remains of a baby," said Bronsvoort.
