  UK police free 3 suspects on bail in truck deaths case LONDON (AP) — British police say three suspects who were arrested in the deaths of 39 people hidden in a shipping container have been released on bail. Police in southeastern England said Sunday that a 38-year-old man, a 38-year-old woman — both from the northern English town of Warrington— and a 45-year-old man from Northern Ireland have been released after being questioned on suspicion of manslaughter and conspiracy to traffic people.

The family heard from a friend living in the U.K. that "Nhung is one of the victims," said one of Nhung's relatives, who was visiting the missing teen's despaired mother.

Nhung paid an agent over $10,000 with the hope of entering the U.K. to work as a nail technician, the relative said.

Nhung and many others from Yen Thanh district, where the village is located, some 200 kilometers (120 miles) south of Hanoi, travel abroad looking to make the type of money they cannot earn back home. One of their main goals is to send back enough to allow their families to build large homes that they would otherwise be unable to afford.

"Many families in Yen Thanh have gotten rich from money sent back by their children working abroad," said Le Dình Tuan, one of Nhung's neighbors, who was at the house.
