Police in Indiana needs the public’s help in figuring out exactly how a young Black boy ended up stuffed in an “I Love Vegas” suitcase after having died. According to police, last month cops made the grisly discovery in a rural wooded area but there have been few answers since. Cops believe his family may still be in the area, though, nobody had the heart to even come forward for his funeral which the reported local community is now paying for.
Cops have been largely unable to find any security footage; home security footage, or anything in the area that would’ve shown who dropped the suitcase off.
An autopsy found dehydration was the cause of his death and was likely caused by gastroenteritis. It is unclear when this condition may have arisen but likely arose due to severe dehydration. There were no signs of physical abuse though the same cannot be said for other forms of abuse.
The five-year-old boy found stuffed inside this suitcase in woods in Indiana in April died from dehydration, police have revealed as they continue to hunt for his killer.
