Two murder accusations from New Zealand, where the bodies of two dead children were discovered last month in abandoned bags, led to the arrest of a lady on Thursday in South Korea, according to authorities. Authorities did not immediately confirm that the 42-year-old woman was the mother of the deceased children.

A South Korean court warrant issued after New Zealand demanded her extradition led to the woman’s detention, according to South Korean police, in the port city of Ulsan in the country’s southeast.

According to Park Seung-hoon, a representative of the National Police Agency, the woman is still in South Korea and will be evaluated by the Seoul High Court to determine whether or not she should be extradited. Park stated that although a time frame hadn’t been established, the review had to occur within two months.

The help of the Korean authorities and the coordination by our New Zealand Police Interpol team allowed for the overseas arrest of a suspect in such a short amount of time, according to a statement from Detective Inspector Tofilau Fa’amanuia Vaaelua.
He claimed that both domestic and international inquiries were still being conducted and that the inquiry had been “very challenging.”

Following a New Zealand family’s purchase of abandoned items from an Auckland storage facility in an online auction, including two suitcases, the bodies were discovered last month. According to police, there was no connection between the killings and the New Zealand family. Police stated that the suitcases had been in storage for at least three or four years and that the children, who ranged in age from 5 to 10, had been dead for a while.
