A DISMEMBERED body has reportedly been discovered in an apartment after neighbors reported a foul smell.
The NYPD confirmed to The U.S. Sun that the investigation remains active and ongoing as of 9pm on Wednesday.
Police responded to the scene in Brooklyn just after 1.30pm.
A foul odor reportedly prompted neighbors to call the police.
It is unclear at this point if the remains belong to a man or a woman.
The medical examiner’s office has been spotted at the scene as the investigation continues.
The body parts were reportedly found in multiple suitcases, according to the New York Post.
A significant amount of blood was also reportedly found at the scene on the sixth-floor, sources told the outlet.
While officials have not yet released the victim’s identity, police sources told the Post there was a woman in her 20s living in the unit.
Police sources also told the outlet that a person of interest had been identified and was wanted for questioning.
A neighbor, Kim Angeles, told the Post that human remains were found by the building’s superintendent.
The investigation is now unfolding in the Cypress Hills neighborhood of Brooklyn.
The building, 315 Linwood Street, is an affordable housing complex that opened nearly two years ago, according to online records.
There are 100 units, as well as a community facility space, all aimed to help formerly homeless individuals and families, as well as other people earning under a certain percentage of the area median income.
The complex was developed by L+M Development Partners and won an award for Excellence in Affordable Housing by the New York State Association for Affordable Housing.
