On Friday afternoon, authorities in Cross County, Arkansas discovered two dead newborn infants stuffed into a purple suitcase and left in a ditch on the state’s County Road 602. The grim discovered was made by a rabbit hunter.
According to a news release from the Cross County Sheriff’s Office, the infants appeared to have been twins:
