Cops: Body of female found inside bag in Westbury
Police say an autopsy has confirmed that the remains found inside a plastic bag in Westbury on Monday were that of a female.
Cops say they received a report of the rotting smell at Express Steel Supply Company on Hooper Street on Monday. Officials say the bag was discovered by company workers.
Authorities are looking into the possibility the remains are that of a woman who went missing last year. Winsome Perez was last seen in Wantagh, according to police. Her husband worked at the same steel company where the body was found. Police say he is missing as well.
Officials say the homicide investigation is continuing.
