Human Remains Found in Container Near Country Club of Miami Identified as Male Torso
Nightmare before Christmas...
Miami-Dade police have identified human remains found in a storage container near the Country Club of Miami as the torso of a male.
Two fisherman found the container floating in a canal near NW 183rd Street and 73rd Avenue on Friday afternoon, according to Miami-Dade Detective Alvaro Zabaleta. They opened the grayish plastic box, discovered the rotting remains, and called 911. Police do not yet have any more info on the victim.
"It's a regular, plastic storage container," Zabaleta told New Times. "Like the ones you buy at the store and put Christmas stuff in."
Worst early present ever.
