The bodies of two children were found in the canal 6 1/2 hours apart … They found the boy about 3:30 p.m. in a soft, black suitcase. The little girl between the ages o f6-10 years old, and the little boy between the ages of 10-12 years old. Delray Beach detectives say the two bodies may be linked, but they don’t have definitive evidence. The bodies didn’t immediately match the descriptions of any known missing children, police said.
The canal where the bodies were discovered crosses by several major roadways, including Interstate 95.
The girl is described as black, weighing about 70 to 90 pounds, and was around 4ft to 4ft 6 inches tall. She was wearing a short-sleeved shirt, dark pants and blue Polo brand sneakers. Her hair was braided with beads in it. Police would only say that the boy was wearing blue or black shorts, no shirt. An autopsy will help determine how long the children had been in the water.
