THURSDAY STORY:

Authorities have arrested a 24-year-old woman more than a month after twin babies were found dead inside a suitcase along an Arkansas road.

Keysheonna Reed of Wynne faces two counts of abuse of a corpse, according to a news release from the Cross County sheriff’s office. She remained at the Cross County jail as of Thursday.

On Feb. 16, the agency found the bodies of two babies — a boy and a girl — on County Road 602 inside a purple suitcase, about 90 miles northeast of Little Rock.

They had a gestational age of 32 to 34 weeks, meaning they were about six to eight weeks premature, according to authorities.

Detectives followed up on “numerous” leads that required assistance from the Arkansas State Police, the sheriff’s office said, which eventually revealed the owner of the bag. The agency previously noted that more than 20 people had been interviewed in the investigation.

The state Crime Laboratory determined that the babies were born dead. No illegal substances were found in their systems.

So instead of properly burying your stillborn children, you stuff them in a suitcase like trash. Well done, mother of the year! What is wrong with people today!?
