The Remains of a Woman's Body Found Inside of a Trash Bin in Los Angeles Have Been Identified.

The body of a woman, found in a trash bin, last week has finally been identified.

Last Tuesday, the Los Angeles Police Department received a call around 10:00 a.m. about possible human remains in a trash can. The bin was found near Wentworth Street and Sherman Grove Avenue.

William Elliot, a Sunland resident, said someone dumped the trash can onto his property. Noticing the trash bin was out of place, Elliot moved it from his property without ever looking inside.

"I found it last night around 6:30 when I came home going down the driveway looked over and saw. Saw that it was a trash can tipped over on its face and I could smell something not right right away," Elliot said.

He said he called police, the city and sanitation, telling them something didn't seem right.

According to other reports the body was that of a woman, in her thirties, that was severely decomposing at the time it was discovered. It was also said that the body was placed inside of a Burton snowboarding bag then inside of the large trash bin.

The body was taken to the coroner to determine the cause of death which is presumed to be a homicide. The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner's office has since identified the woman as 32-year-old Heather Haas.
