Police said the couple are suspected of killing another couple and then dumping their headless torsos in a forest on the edge of Paris.
According to France24
, police describe the couple as of Asian origin. They were detained over the past weekend after they decided to turn themselves in. This came after the torso of a woman was discovered on Friday, according to police.
The couple turned themselves in on Saturday, according to Reuters
, then led police to a second headless torso.
According to GlobalPost
, the couple admitted that they killed the couple. They said that the dead couple's child died while in their care, and that is what triggered a dispute that led to the killing.
A source said that the couple said that the child's death was an accident. They also allegedly tried to conceal the child's death by putting the body in a trash bag. The couple then went back to France because they felt remorse. Their lawyer advised them to turn themselves over to police.
