Orlando and his sister Alysia Mcgilvery were hanging out with a few friends in their backyard about 1 a.m. when two men walked down the alleyway north of 113th Avenue at 124th Street and asked them to call police. They said there was “a dead body two doors down from us,” Orlando said. He hadn’t heard any screaming or a commotion, but when he and his friends went to check, they found the woman lying in the cart, face up. He said she looked to be in her 20s. The friends checked her pulse and she was cold, Orlando said. “She was blue. She was gone,” Alysia said. “It’s very traumatizing to see that. It’s not something I wanted to see. ... It’s good that we found her, but it shouldn’t have been that way. That girl had a long life ahead of her.” Staff Sgt. Colin Leathem said west division officers were called to the area just after 1 a.m. Paramedics pronounced the woman dead at the scene. Police later confirmed that the woman’s body was bound and left in a shopping cart. Homicide detectives are investigating. Later Tuesday morning, someone had draped a red tarp over the shopping cart which was tucked beneath an overhanging tree behind a garage. Several investigators surrounded the cart at one point to take pictures, as other officers held up the red tarp to obscure the scene. Police placed yellow evidence placards along the alleyway, all the way up to 114th Avenue. Police are not saying if a weapon was used. Next of kin notifications have not yet been completed, police said. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday. firstname.lastname@example.org Twitter.com/otiena This made me really sad. Judging from how she was murdered, it appears that it was done as a statement to someone. Gang related? Drug related? Either way, I hope they find the people who did this and he/she/they rot in jail. Must have been horrific to see/smell/experience something like this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
