Bodies in suitcases: Former police officer charged with hiding two bodies

See also

In shocking news earlier this month police found two suitcases along the side of the road in Wisconsin. On Friday, Washington Post shared about what happened. When they found these suitcases in the tall grass, bodies were found inside of them. Now police have charged Steven Zelich with the murders of these two women. He is an ex-police officer and security guard.

People are on sex and dating sites every single day. You might want to think twice before meeting someone off of these sites though. Reports are that the suspect Steven Zelich actually met these women online on a website that was for bondage. Yes they were into this but obviously he took it too far.

One of the bodies was thirty-seven-year-old Laura Simonson and she was naked with a ball gag in her mouth when they found her. Fox News shared that she was the mother of seven children. The other body has not been identified yet but this woman was in a garbage bag and had her hands tied behind her back. Both bodies had started to decompose already. One of the women was killed in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, and the second in Rochester, Minnesota. Hopefully police will release the identity of the second woman soon.

Steven Zelich is admitting that he had these bodies for over a year and a half. He met the women, killed them and then stuffed them into the suitcases. He would carry them around with him with the bodies inside before finally throwing them in the ditch. Police are expecting him to be charged with homicide when he goes into court later today.

Remember to be careful when meeting someone for a date that you have met online. You can never be too careful. The first meeting should be in a public place. Steven Zelich is a perfect example of why you need to be careful.
