Human body parts found in trash

Associated Press, February 3, 2010

CHICAGO – Chicago police say a waste disposal employee has discovered bags of human body parts in a southwest side trash container.

Officer Gabrielle Lesniak of the Chicago Police News Affairs Office says the employee found the remains in trash bags in an alley behind the 8100 block of South Western Ave. as he worked his usual route Wednesday afternoon.

Lesniak says investigators have confirmed the body parts are human, but could not comment further because they are considered evidence in a death investigation.
