A woman in South Korea has been arrested in connection with two suitcases purchased at a storage facility auction in New Zealand that were found to contain the bodies of two children.
The unnamed woman, who is 42 years old and believed to be the mother of the children, was arrested late last week, CNN reported. The woman reportedly moved to South Korea years ago, sometime after the suitcases were abandoned at the New Zealand storage facility.
In a press release, New Zealand Detective Inspector Tofilau Fa’amanuia Vaaelua said that police have applied to have the woman extradited back to New Zealand to face charges for the children’s death.
