On Friday morning police searched a man’s home in the city of Caracal in relation to a 15-year-old girl’s disappearance. On Wednesday, the minor called three times to emergency number 112, saying she was seized by a man, but the authorities failed to identify where she was.
At the man’s home, a car mechanic by profession, they found remnants that seem to be of a human nature. Thus, bones were identified in a barrel, but also jewels that seem to belong to the girl gone missing on July 24th.
Police officers also take into consideration that the barrel may contain the remnants of another girl who disappeared two months ago in that area.
