New Zealand family finds human remains inside suitcase they won

A New Zealand family made a grim discovery when they reportedly found human remains in a suitcase they recently won – a find resulting in a homicide investigation.

The discovery was made at a home in Manurewa on the country’s North Island, near Auckland, on the afternoon of Aug. 11. Police were alerted after the family “brought unowned property to their address,” Detective Inspector Tofilau Faamanuia Vaaelua, Counties Manukau District Crime Manager, said in a news release last week. 

Multiple New Zealand outlets reported the family found the remains while going through materials they had won as part of a storage unit auction. Authorities did not disclose how many human remains were found, but said staff was working at the address overnight, as it became a homicide investigation.
