The remains of two little kids have been found in suitcase s sold as part of an online auction.

Police confirmed today the morbid luggage that had been gathering dust in a storage unit in South Auckland, New Zealand contained the bodies of two primary-school aged children.

South Auckland Detective Inspector Tofilau Faamanuia Vaaelua said the bodies were found on August 11 and that a post-mortem has indicated the kids may have died a number of years ago.

Pathologists say the youngsters were aged between five and 10 but are now trying to establish when, where and how they died.

Police feel positive about inquiries into the storage unit, Vaaelua said, adding investigators are making “good progress with DNA inquiries”.

He also inferred cops may know their identities already when he confirmed the victims' families are in New Zealand.

Vaaelua said Interpol has also been contacted regarding the case.

The suitcase was found in the back of a trailer where prams, toys and other “kids stuff” were strewn about, according to a neighbour.

The current residents of the home are not thought to be involved, police said.

They brought “unowned property to their address” after buying the contents of a storage locker as part of an online auction.

The family left Auckland after the horrific discovery while sorting through the trailer-load of items in their driveway.

A man at their home earlier this week said he was minding his relatives' property and that they are “doing alright” after the morbid find.

He said: “We're doing all right. As long as everyone leaves us alone we'll be all right.

“They've gone away. I wasn't here.”

Police set up a cordon around the house while forensic workers examine the scene earlier this week, but have now left the home secured by a large metal gate.

The detective – who branded it a “horrific case” – said the discovery has been hard on murder cops, especially those with kids of their own.
