Miami-Dade Police have not released the victim’s age, race or gender and asked nearby residents to report any suspicious activity in the area.

The discovery comes a few weeks after a man’s body was found chopped up and stuffed inside a container that had been weighted down with concrete in Broward County.

It’s unclear if the two are related.
