DETROIT -- A body dressed only in underwear and missing its head, hands and feet was found in a sewer in Detroit.
Investigators said the body appeared to have been stuffed through a manhole cover at least a week ago and that the person appears to have been killed elsewhere and transported to the area, The Detroit News reported.
"That is a good neighborhood where people have tried to take care of their property," said Police Chief Joyce Motley. "It's just true that as long as you have people, good and bad things will happen."
Investigators were still unsure Tuesday of the cause of death or the identity of the person. They were not even completely sure of its gender, although they believed it was a woman.
