-- A Dutch woman confessed to giving birth to four babies, then placing them in suitcases and storing them on the top floor of her parents' home, a Dutch prosecutor said Sunday.

The 25-year-old woman was arrested Wednesday and confessed Thursday, Prosecutor Hank Mous told CNN. Police recovered the four bodies in four suitcases at the woman's parents' house, in Nij Beets, Netherlands, where she also resided, he said.

Authorities are awaiting the results of forensic tests to determine causes of death and over what time span the deaths occurred before filing charges against the woman, Mous said. He would not release her name.

I can't believe stuff like this. Blows me away.

This woman is just a despicable excuse for a human being.

She's obviously insane. And I don't think she's done anything wrong and should not face criminal charges for this, though she should clearly receive psychiatric treatment.

There was a similar story in France last week. This woman gave birth to like 7 or 8 babies over the years and buried them in the backyard. :shock:

Just for the record, she did something terribly wrong. What level of cuplability she has for doing it we can't say yet, but this is pretty horrible.

What, letting her babies die or stuffing them in suitcases? If she'd had the good sense to kill her babies a couple months earlier, it would have been perfectly legal.

Sadly yes. And I wouldn't doubt that some people will minimize her guilt based on that idea.

Reading the dutch newspapers today it seems your opinion coincides with the average dutchman, even the right-wing Telegraaf more or less stated that by saying that "there are only victims in this case".

She will get TBS (involuntary commitment) no doubt, meaning she'll be forced to undergo psychiatric treatment in detention.
