Police in Hamburg found bodies two newborn babies hidden in a train station locker on Thursday morning. The woman believed to be the mother is in psychiatric care.
A spokesman for prosecutors in Lübeck said police found a bad-smelling package placed in a suitcase in a locker and made the gruesome discovery at around 10am.
Police in Lübeck had already been investigating a 39-year-old woman from nearby Bad Schwartau on suspicion of manslaughter.
Their inquiries into her case led them to the locker in Hamburg’s central train station.
She was brought to the police’s attention by a friend who reported her after an appeal on crime watch TV show “Aktenzeichen XY”. The appeal, concerning an unrelated case of a dead baby, asked: “Who knows this woman was was pregnant but has no baby?”
The exact circumstances of the deaths will now be investigated.
