(Scroll down for video) Residents in Seattle, Washington, were shocked to see a homeless man pushing a shopping cart that contained a dead body, police said.
The incident began when a passerby saw the man with dreadlocks and a casual hat, pushing the shopping cart full of clothes near Martin Luther King Jr. Street and South Austin on Thursday, and realized that human feet were hanging out of the basket.
When police officers arrived at the scene they found that there was indeed a dead body in the basket. The Seattle Police Department said that firefighters determined that the person had suffered fatal injuries.
The cause of death is still undetermined. Witnesses said that the man who was pushing the shopping cart with the body, was rummaging in the garbage can.
When a neighbor confronted him, he left the shopping cart behind and fled. Officers searched the area, but the man was nowhere to be found.
Later, police said that they arrested an unidentified 46-year-old man in connection with the murder.
