The landlord of a Trenton home made the gruesome discovery of a human body inside a garbage bag after evicting a hoarder tenant last week.
The human remains were discovered in a vacant apartment inside a multi-family residence while the landlord and a friend were cleaning up the clutter.
Authorities are now working to identify the body. But the landlord believes the remains belonged to a woman, probably the tenant's girlfriend, who was living with him before disappearing.
He described the body as “very small” and that he saw the victim's head. Another neighbor also believes the victim is the woman who went missing weeks ago.
“An autopsy will be performed by the Middlesex Regional Medical Examiner's Office. The Mercer County Homicide Task Force and the Trenton Police Department are investigating,” Mercer County Prosecutor Casey DeBlasio said.
