Police release pictures

NEW images of clothing found in a suitcase that was dumped with the remains of a young child on the side of a South Australian highway have been released in an attempt to help identify the suspected murder victim.

The skeletal remains of the child, aged between two and five, were found in scrubland by a motorist on the side of the Karoonda Highway about two kilometres west of Wynarka, in the Murray Mallee region, on Wednesday.

SA Police yesterday released more images of the contents of a suitcase and said they had received about 100 calls, including some from interstate, to Crime Stoppers.

Many of the calls have been to check on the welfare of children who police say are not connected to the investigation.

The latest images to be released include girl’s pyjamas, pink track pants, coat and a Dora the Explorer T-shirt.

Detective Superintendent Des Bray, the officer-in-charge of Major Crime Investigation Branch, urged anyone who recognised the clothes to contact police.
