    Police divers are searching a pond in Sydney's south-west this morning, where a suitcase containing the body of a child was found floating yesterday afternoon.
    Two children aged about 10 and 12 opened the case after finding it floating in a duckpond at Mandurama Reserve at Rosemeadow, near Campbelltown, about 5pm, a police spokeswoman said.
    "Inside the suitcase was the body of a child," she said.

    OMG how horrible, and they say no one has reported a child missing yet.
    I hope they can identify him, this breaks my heart.

    Oh, my God Almighty! What a horror for the kids that found it, and especially for the poor little victim.

    Will these horrors never cease?

    Oh, those poor boys who found the suitcase. I hope they identify the victim and discover why nobody's reporting a missing child. And also that they investigate the second suitcase to see if it has another body.

    The group of about 10 children made the gruesome discovery while playing in the park in the Sydney suburb of Rosemeadow.

    “We were riding our scooters when a friend came up and said there was a dead pig down at the duck pond, so we went down to see,” one of the boys, unidentified because of his age, told Australian television.

    “Me and my friends got sticks and flipped it over and then we saw that there was feet, so we went up to our houses to call the police,” he said.

    The boy, aged between 4 and 8, was in a fetal position wrapped in plastic inside the tartan-patterned bag of carry-on luggage size, said Homicide Detective Superintendent Geoff Beresford.

    The grim discovery has triggered a murder investigation and a police warning to parents.

    There has been widespread outrage in Australia at the apparent brutality directed towards the unidentified child.
    Police said the body did not match the description of anyone on missing-persons lists.

    Beresford said that witnesses had told investigators that they had seen the bag floating in the pond for at least two days, and that the body was in the early stages of decomposition.

    I saw this last night posted on a ctv board. It said they were offering counseling for the children. What a horrible childhood memory.

    This is a terrible, terrible crime against a young boy, hope they find the person or persons responsible, I dont understand why no one has come forward or reported their child missing.

    Unhappy

    OMG! How horrible, both for the victim and for the kids who discovered the body. I cannot imagine how you get those images out of your mind.

    Prayers for all of them, and for LE. They will need it.
