NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE (CBSMiami) – Police are appealing for the public’s help after a woman’s body is discovered inside a recycling company.
The case appears to be a mystery as Miami-Dade Police say there is no indication that the woman worked for the Southeastern Recycling Corporation. So now the question is how her body ended up inside the gated, waste management recycling company at 3401 N.W. 110th St.?
A spokeswoman for the company told CBS4 that she would not comment, calling the incident a “police matter.”
Miami-Dade Police say employees made the disturbing discovery around 8 Tuesday morning.
“Basically during the early morning hours, we received a call from this place that there was a body found at this facility,” said Major Garry Jeanniton of the Miami-Dade Police Department.
Jeanniton told CBS4 that “Uniform responded. We did call homicide. All we know so far is that it is a white female. We don’t know anything else. We don’t have the identity of the person. From what I gather it was the workers from the place that found the body.”
Jeanniton said Police were not sure what age the woman was or how long her body had been at the company or how she died.
Jeanniton was asked if there were any signs of “obvious trauma.”
“I can’t answer that,” he said.
Jeanniton told D’Oench, “We need assistance from the public to help us identify the person, if we can’t identify her by regular means.”
An autopsy by the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office could provide some clues to the woman’s identity and her age.
Just after 2 p.m., a van from the Medical Examiner’s Office was seen taking the body from the scene.
It was not known if the woman matched the description of any missing persons.
CBS4 also reported that it did not not appear that any other police agencies were involved at the scene with this case. And no family members of the woman were seen at the Southeastern Recycling Corporation.
CBS4 tried to speak with employes at the company but they refused to comment.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS (8477) or (866) 471-8477
