A body eviscerated has reportedly been discovered in an apartment after neighbors reported a foul odor.
The NYPD confirmed to The US Sun that the investigation is active and ongoing at 9 p.m. Wednesday.
Police arrived in Brooklyn just after 1:30 p.m.
An unpleasant smell prompted the neighbors to call the police.
It is currently unclear whether the remains belong to a man or a woman.
The coroner’s office has been spotted at the scene as the investigation continues.
The body parts were found in several suitcases, according to the New York Post.
A significant amount of blood was also reportedly found at the sixth-floor crime scene, sources told the outlet.
Although officials have not yet released the victim’s identity, police sources told the Post that a woman in her 20s lived in the unit.
Police sources also told the outlet that a person of interest had been identified and wanted for questioning.
A neighbor, Kim Angeles, told the Post that human remains were found by the building’s superintendent.
The study now takes place in the Cypress Hills neighborhood of Brooklyn.
The building, 315 Linwood Street, is an affordable residential complex that opened nearly two years ago, according to online data.
There are 100 units, as well as a community hall, all intended to help formerly homeless individuals and families, as well as other people earning less than a certain percentage of the area’s median income.
The complex was developed by L+M Development Partners and has won an award for excellence in affordable housing by the New York State Association for Affordable Housing.
