Bags with body parts – level 1

24-11-2014 07:00

This happens in Thailand. Plastic bags are found. People find something very bad inside them. There are human body parts in them.

The body parts are from adults and babies. There is a baby’s head, a foot, a heart and some skin. Police investigate this crime. They suspect two men. They are American. They are 31 and 33. Thai police contact the FBI.

Difficult words: adult (a person who is older than a child or a teenager), investigate (try to find out something), suspect (think that someone might have done something wrong).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Why would somebody do something like this?
