COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Danish police say the remains of a 27-year-old Syrian woman and her two daughters, aged 7 and 9, were found in a freezer inside their apartment in southern Denmark.
Police made the gruesome discovery Sunday in the town of Aabenraa after a relative of the woman told them he hadn’t been able to reach her for a few days.
Investigators said Monday that the victims were killed but didn’t give any details.
The woman’s husband wasn’t in the apartment and is now being sought by police.
