The identity of the children found in suitcases in New Zealand is clear

Police in New Zealand have identified the two children whose remains were found in suitcases sold at an online auction earlier this month, reports CBC News.

The family has asked that their names not be released.

Police launched a homicide investigation after the remains were found in South Auckland on August 11.

Investigators determined the children were likely between the ages of 5 and 10 when they died. According to them, the children had been dead for three or four years.

The cause of death is still unclear.

A week ago, police in the South Korean capital of Seoul found the woman believed to be the children’s mother.

The woman is about 40 years old and arrived in South Korea in 2018. She was born in South Korea, but later went to New Zealand, where she obtained citizenship.

Police found that the woman’s New Zealand address matched the one where the suitcases had been stored for years.

The authorities are checking the footage from the cameras. The warehouse where the suitcases were stored has been thoroughly examined by the forensic experts.

South Korean police are cooperating with New Zealand authorities through Interpol.

Police stressed that the family that bought the suitcases was not connected to the children’s deaths.
