Police are continuing to question a 64-year-old woman today after the body of a baby was found in a suitcase in an attic and two other babies' bodies were believed to have been discovered in bags in the loft of another nearby house.
The pensioner, named locally as Anne Mahoney, was arrested yesterday in connection with the discovery of the body of the first infant in a property in Penyfan View, on the Gurnos estate of Merthyr Tydfil, south Wales, on March 20.
She was arrested at her home in Forsythia Close on the same estate.
South Wales Police searched the property and announced last night they had uncovered what they believed to be the bodies of two more babies.
