The torso of a Chinese woman was found in an apartment complex in Antwerp, Belgium, with investigators believing she may have been linked to a prostitution network.
The upper half of the 50-year-old Chinese national’s body was found in a suitcase in the basement of an apartment building on January 27th and was recently identified by prosecutors.
Following the discovery of the body, investigators found other body parts in the vicinity. A source close to the case stated that investigators believe the woman was connected to prostitution networks, the French newspaper Le Figaro reports.
“The hypothesis is that this criminal organization (of human trafficking) is at the origin,” the source told French media.
“It is possible that the facts have a link with the world of Chinese prostitution.”
