Investigators reportedly reviewed surveillance footage showing an unidentified man pushing the woman to the alley in a shopping cart. It is not immediately known whether the woman was already dead when the video was taken.

Cops told the New York Daily News that a building super made the grisly discovery. The woman was reportedly wearing a shirt, but no underwear or pants.

“I was doing the recycling. When I lifted up the lid, that’s when I saw her body,” the super, Nelson Castillo, revealed to the Daily News. “From what I saw of her, she was naked. I was terrified. I called the police.”

Sources told the Post there were no obvious signs of trauma. A medical examiner will determine her cause and manner of death.
