DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Police say they think they've identified the bodies of two children found dead in a South Florida canal, and they believe they're siblings.

But authorities in Delray Beach haven't released the presumed identities and say no arrests have been made. A police spokeswoman says it's believed that the children are victims of a domestic situation, but declined to elaborate.

It's still not known how long the bodies were in the canal, and autopsy reports haven't been released.

The body of a girl, believed to be 6 to 10 years old, was found in a duffel bag Wednesday morning. The boy's body was discovered later in the day, folded into a suitcase.

    This brings to mind--Adam Walsh--and hoping this,even tho it is horrible news, that it is not like Adams murder. Precious little children are wonderful and the person that did this, is not even functioning as a human being.
