The body of a newborn was found packed up in a suitcase left behind by the tenants of a rented room in Ho Chi Minh City on Friday.

Police of Go Vap District in cooperation with specialized forces of Ho Chi Minh City Police have commenced scene examination to unfold the case of the suitcase-enclosed newborn body found in the rental on 14 Street, Ward 8, Go Vap District.

N., the landlady of the rented room, was the first to report the situation. While attempting to trace down a nauseating smell on the premises, she found that it came from a room whose tenants had moved out a few days prior.

Upon opening the suitcase, the landlady found a black plastic bag containing the decomposing corpse of a newborn.

After receiving the report, functional forces of Go Vap District Police and specialized units of Ho Chi Minh City Police were dispatched to examine the scene and collect testimonies from neighboring residents.

The newborn body has also been brought to a crime lab for forensic analysis in hope of revealing new leads to the case.

According to locals, the room was previously rented by a married couple with three children. The family had moved out just a few days prior to the discovery.
