Kuwait City: A 60-year-old woman has been arrested for hiding her daughter’s body in a bathroom for five years. The incident took place in Salmiya, Kuwait. When police arrived at the scene, they found a skeleton in an unused bathroom.
The incident took place when a 21 – year – old man arrived at the Salmiya police station yesterday. He went to the police station and told police that his mother had killed his sister in 2016 and hid her body in the bathroom of the family apartment. Accordingly, the police team that went to the house for inspection was stopped by the complainant’s brother and mother. But the police team that came with the warrant to the public prosecution was conducting an investigation.
The mother and son, who were stopped by police, were arrested after the remains were found in the apartment. They were handed over to the prosecution for further action. The remains have been handed over to the forensic department for scientific examination. The mother said she had locked her daughter in the room but did not intend to kill her. She said her daughter was locked up to prevent her from leaving the house and to teach her manners. They claim that they did not tell anyone about the incident for fear of repercussions after their daughter died.
The accused and her husband had divorced five years ago. His statement has also been recorded by the police. The ex-husband said he was seeking a divorce because of child abuse. The investigation team, which has collected evidence from the scene, is taking statements from other members of the family.
