NYC crime: Body parts found in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn apartment, believed to be 22-year-old woman

Written by

CYPRESS HILLS, Brooklyn (WABC) — Investigators believe a body found in two suitcases in a Cypress Hills, Brooklyn, apartment is that of a 22-year-old woman.

The woman had not been seen for several days, and when neighbors reported a foul odor, police conducted a wellness check on Apt 6F just after 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

They found a woman’s remains in two suitcases.

Detectives are working on the assumption that it is the apartment’s resident, but the medical examiner will confirm her identity and determine the cause of death.

Residents told police the woman lived in the apartment with a man who detectives are now seeking to speak to.

They told police the two had fought in the past.

Other residents expressed shock and disbelief at the gruesome discovery.

“This neighborhood is not the best neighborhood to be honest with you, but it’s outrageous. Absolutely outrageous,” said neighbor Lindsey Vena. “It scares me to even be here. I’m just sick.”

“This is scary. I live here with my family and it’s just kind of sickening to know that somebody would do something like that where you lay your head down at night,” another resident told Eyewitness News.

The investigation remains active and ongoing.
