|The scene of the incident|
(Scroll down for video) Williamsburg, Brooklyn residents were shocked to learn that passersby discovered a dead young woman, who was carefully wrapped in a blanket, according to police reports in New York.
A popular dead-end street was taken over by police officers and the Medical Examiner on Tuesday night, as detectives are searching for answers after they found the body of a woman at the end of the block near Kent Avenue and Division Avenue.
The body was covered by a comfortably padded blanket, the type used by movers. Police were called late on Tuesday, but the victim could have been there for a long time, without being noticed. A man saw the blanket when he came to work at the location, but did think much of it.
Police believe the victim is about 30-years-old. She has not yet been identified. The cause of death will be determined by an autopsy.
However, police believe the victim was dumped at the site.
