Bottle collectors find head, body parts in shopping cart in US

Daniel Prendergast.

Two men scavenging for bottles and cans made a grisly discovery — a human head and other body parts inside a shopping cart in the Bronx.

The men were on the hunt for recyclables when they figured they hit the jackpot, spying the cart in front of a store on E. 182nd St. near Jerome Ave around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday

When one of the men started rooting around in the cart, he discovered a black garbage bag with the head and other body parts inside.

Police said Thursday the remains have not been identified as it’s not clear how the person died.

The incident is still under investigation.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
