Police are looking for a woman after she allegedly dumped a bag of suspected human remains in a Virginia store dumpster.
The woman, whose name hasn’t been released, was spotted placing the backpack in the dumpster of Gabe’s discount store in Chesterfield County on Monday, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported.
“An employee saw the young lady put something in the dumpster, and thought it was odd,” Chesterfield police Maj. Michael Louth told the newspaper.
Louth said the employee “subsequently went out there and saw the book bag, and it had some blood on it.”
Police opened the backpack and found what was believed to be human remains.
The remains were taken to the medical examiner’s office for an autopsy, police said.
Several hours after releasing surveillance photos of the woman, police said they had identified her, though they declined to release her name.
“The investigation is ongoing. We have no additional information to release at this time,”
