LOS ANGELES (TCD) -- A man was arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman’s dismembered body was discovered in a large dumpster this week.
According to KTLA-TV, on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at approximately 6:15 a.m., a man looking through a recycling bin in Encino found a duffel bag with a trash bag inside. When he opened it, he found a female torso. No other remains were reportedly found at the site.
KTLA reports workers called police Tuesday evening to report a "suspicious bag they believed could have body parts inside." Officers went to a residence on Coldstream Terrace in Tarzana but did not find anything. Investigators looked through surveillance footage from the parking lot where the torso was found and located a car linked to the suspect, Samuel Haskell.
