A woman’s mutilated and decapitated body that missed its feet and hands was found last Monday morning in Southwest Baltimore by several employees at a sink distributing company, officials announced.
Baltimore police received a call reporting a deceased body on a dead-end street at about 10:30 a.m.
Once there, they found it under a tarp in a recently overgrown area, local media sources reported.
According to the worker who first spotted the mutilated corpse, it “looked like it had been there for a while or someone had recently come and dropped it off.”
“It was very surprising – sort of surreal,” he added.
A homicide investigation is being conducted. As of Wednesday, the woman’s identity and age were not yet determined.
Police are asking anyone with relevant information regarding the circumstances of the case to call 410-396-2100.
