According to reports, a 12-year-old girl’s body was discovered inside a suitcase in Paris.
According to BFMTV, her father became worried when she didn’t come home from school on Friday.
Later that day, the girl’s mother went to the local police station in the 19th arrondissement of the French capital and reported her missing.
Detectives started an investigation right away after they found evidence of a kidnapping in the family home’s basement.
CCTV footage then showed a woman outside the building carrying a suitcase, which was later found a few streets away in rue d’Hautpoul with the girl’s corpse inside.
Her face was covered in tape and she had several cuts to her throat. A post-mortem examination will take place on Saturday.
Four people are currently in custody, but it is not clear what they were arrested for. Among them is the man who called police after discovering the suitcase.
The investigation into a ‘murder of a minor under 15’ is ongoing.
