The naked body of a deceased woman was discovered late Monday night next to an off-ramp of the I-5 Freeway in Boyle Heights. The corpse, left in a plastic storage container, was likely dumped by her killer or killers, say the Los Angeles Police Department, according to LA Now. The body was found in the brush off the freeway at State Street and Cesar Chavez Avenue by a homeless person, who notified authorities."Officials said the body is that of a Hispanic female who may be 20 to 30 years old," reports ABC7. The LAPD believe her death was a homicide, and the coroner's office will conduct an autopsy and work to identify the victim.
