Helsinki • Finnish police have arrested a 35-year-old woman on suspicion of manslaughter after finding five dead babies in an apartment building, authorities said Wednesday.
Officers found the bodies in "badly smelly packages" Tuesday in a basement cupboard of an apartment building in the western city of Oulu after they were alerted to the scene by emergency services.
"A woman arrived there as officers had begun their investigation, saying she had put the packages into the cupboard," Det. Supt. Seppo Leinonen told the AP. "She said she'd given birth to the stillborn babies between five and 10 years ago at home."
