There have been reports indicating that the body of a 12-year-old girl has been found inside a suitcase in Paris. A murder investigation has been launched following the discovery of the body of a 12-year-old girl in Paris - tied in a suitcase, covered in cuts across her throat and with numbers placed on her with a device.
During a CCTV surveillance of the little girl's building, the father of the child allegedly saw his daughter in the presence of a young woman in her twenties. It was reported that her body was found in a suitcase on the night of Friday and Saturday.
Several cuts were visible on her neck and her face was taped up. She is reported to have had her throat cut by the French television station BFMT. As part of the investigation, six people have been arrested, but some journalists are unsure of the exact nature of their links to the killing.
The girl disappeared on Friday
When she did not return home from school on Friday, her father became concerned, and while he launched his own search, her mother reported her missing to the local police station after she did not arrive home from school.
Detectives quickly launched an investigation after signs of the abduction were discovered in the basement of the family home. In the videos, the father saw his little girl helping an unknown woman carry a suitcase to the car, and later her body was found in that suitcase.
Judging by the videos, the woman asked the girl for help because of the heavy suitcase. "The body of a teenager born in 2010 was discovered last night in the 19th arrondissement of Paris. He was in a suitcase. She had disappeared yesterday afternoon on her way home from college."
According to BFMTV, among the six detained are the man who discovered the suitcase with the body and the woman seen in the video. The police believe that the man who found the suitcase on the street has nothing to do with the murder, but they want to check everything first.
