Child's Remains Found in Suitcase on the Side of the Road Remain a Mystery

suitcase in the middle of highwayDevastating and mysterious news coming out of Australia today. A suitcase with the skeletal remains of a young girl was found on the side of a highway in Australia -- and the victim's death may have occurred years ago, as items found dated all the way back to 2007.

The police have no leads on the little girl's identity, but they do know that she had fair hair and was between the ages of 2 and 4 when she was murdered. The suitcase also contained a black tutu, a pink shoe, a Dora the Explorer purple top, and red sports shorts. The police won't disclose how they know she was murdered -- but they are positive that's how she died. The police also think she was murdered elsewhere and that her remains were stuffed into the suitcase that was then found close to the small town of Wynarka.

Right now a man who was seen holding the faded gray suitcase several weeks ago is being sought after by the police and all the homicide and missing person units across the country have been contacted. But sadly there are no strong leads to help them figure out this little girl's identity.

This makes me want to fall onto the floor in a ball and cry my eyes out. There is a family out there who has probably been wondering -- for years -- what happened to their little girl. While this is the worst possible news in the world to deliver to them -- at least it will give them much needed closure so that they can heal properly. Not that you can ever recover from something this tragic and devastating.

I have a 6-month-old daughter and I just want to hug her and never let her out of my sight after hearing about something this terrible. More than anything, I hope they find the person who did this and he/she goes to jail immediately. It's just as heartbreaking to think that a monster got away with this for so long and has been roaming the streets free and clear.
