Bags with body parts – level 2

24-11-2014 07:00

A Bangkok shipping company found baby and adult body parts in plastic containers. They were destined for Las Vegas.

There was a baby’s head, a foot, a heart and a sheet of tattooed skin. Thai police investigate this terrible crime. Police suspect two American men who are 31 and 33. Thai police say that they will contact the FBI.

Difficult words: shipping company (a company which moves things from one place to another), sheet (a piece), suspect (believe that somebody is guilty of a crime).

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

Why would somebody do something like this?
