MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Authorities in Milwaukee are trying to identify a body found in a dumpster Sunday night on the city’s northwest side.
A woman was taking out her trash when she found a decomposed body in a white sheet early Sunday evening. Her sister called police, and officers will try to determine the victim’s identity Monday.
The woman told WTMJ-TV that she and her sister speculated on whether the body could be that of 22-year-old transgender rap artist Ebony Young – who’s been missing since New Year’s Day after an apparent internal gang dispute.
The dumpster is about a mile-and-a-half from where Young went missing. Five people have been charged with her murder, although her body was never recovered.
Last week, police gave up looking for Young’s remains in a landfill, after reports that Young’s dead body was thrown into a trash bin and later hauled away.
