Woman’s decomposed body found stuffed inside bin in the Bronx
A horrific discovery was made on Friday afternoon when a woman’s “semi-decomposed” body was found inside a plastic bin in a wooded area in the Bronx, according to the NYPD. The body was discovered around 12:15 pm near 4438 Edson Avenue in Wakefield, an area secluded enough to be used as a shortcut by locals to train stations and shops.
The cause of death has yet to be determined by the Medical Examiner’s Office, but the residents of the area have shed some light on the discovery. One resident, James Washington, reported that he saw the bin on Wednesday while walking with his girlfriend, and stated that “I was gonna come back and open it but I didn’t open it.” Police speculate that the woman had already died by that point, although the exact time of death is not yet known.
Local residents spoke out about the incident, describing the area as usually quiet and safe. “It’s so crazy because I just walked through that path last night going to the store and I didn’t notice anything,” said Koya M., a resident of the area. Officials do not suspect foul play at this point, but the investigation is ongoing.
