MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee police are working to identity the human remains discovered in a trash bag next to a dumpster on the city’s north side Sunday evening, February 17th.
According to police, the body was found in a trash bag behind an apartment building near 63rd and Kaul shortly after 4 p.m. by an area resident.
Neighbors tell FOX6 News that a woman discovered the remains, which were wrapped in a sheet, while taking out the trash.
Police have not yet determined whether the body is that of a male or female.
The woman who discovered the body reported it to officials as a skeleton.
Police say the investigation is ongoing — and they say they do believe this is a suspicious death.
An autopsy will be conducted Monday, February 18th to positively identity the body and determine the cause of death.
