MIAMI (CBS4) — Police brought out dogs to help in their investigation after human remains were found near a Miami canal.
Two fishermen spotted a plastic storage container Friday, removed the lid and discovered the remains.
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.
