Mother admits hiding son’s body in suitcase

The mother of the nine year old boy whose body was found in a suitcase on Menorca has stated that he died in 2008 and it was out of fear that she hid the body.

The woman, who is now 30 years old, has a stable relationship and is employed, was, at the time, single and referred to the boy as her nephew, although he was in fact her son.

When the child disappeared, the woman told everyone he had gone to live with family in Galicia. She then put the body into a suitcase, along with a number of items belonging to her son, such as comics and clothes, and took it to a secluded area where it remained undiscovered until this week.

It was the contents of the suitcase which helped forensic experts identify the corpse.

The suitcase was found on Tuesday of last week by two brothers from Mahón who were out collecting firewood.
