The timeline of the case
A family in New Zealand capitalizing on the trend of buying abandoned warehouses bought for a low price in auction a storage unit that contained suitcases, in the hope of course that their contents would be valuable.
However, instead of finding valuable items, the family members opened the suitcases and saw that they contained dismembered bodies.
The family notified the police as soon as they opened the first suitcase and saw the disgusting contents.
According to neighbors, at least three hearses showed up at the property.
“I feel sorry for the family because they had nothing to do with it,” a neighbor told Newshub.
“For whoever did it, it’s horrific,” he said.
Authorities are trying to identify the victims and locate the former owner of the suitcases and storage unit.
It is currently unclear how long the bodies were in the suitcases or when the last payment was made by the previous owner.
