The boy found dead in the Indiana forest was stuffed into a suitcase

A young boy found dead in Indiana was discovered in a suitcase covered with the image of the famous Las Vegas sign, authorities said.

The unidentified boy, believed to be between the ages of 5 and 8, was found in a suitcase in a heavily wooded area of ​​New Perkin on Saturday, State Police Sgt said. Carey Huls told Fox 19 on Tuesday.

Huls said a preliminary autopsy couldn’t determine a cause of death, so investigators will rely on toxicology tests to see if the child had drugs in his system when he died.

He urged anyone with information about the boy to contact the authorities.

“I know it’s disturbing and shocking, but we hope the release of the suitcase’s image will be remembered by someone,” he said.

“Of course, that could be a national thing,” Huls added. “It could be a kid from any place. We will not exclude anyone and we will look at any incoming information that may answer the question of the identity of this child.”

According to the news agency, police have reached out to the forensic services team at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children for help.

“Investigators are grateful for any leads received, but ask that the public refrain from broadcasting information about children who have already been documented missing at this time. Investigators say these cases are already under investigation,” police said, WRTV reported. The boy found dead in the Indiana forest was stuffed into a suitcase
