Human remains found in Austin neighborhood trash can

CHICAGO - Authorities have opened an investigation after human remains were found in a trash can in the Austin neighborhood yesterday evening, police said.

There's not a lot of information to go on at this time but human remains were discovered in a trash can around 7:00 p.m. last night on the 100 block of N. Leclaire Avenue near Washington Boulevard in the Austin neighborhood on the city's west side.

Earlier this week, on Wednesday morning, other human remains were found by trash collectors on Washington Boulevard near North Lamon Avenue.

Police have opened a death investigation but there is no other information available at this time. Authorities are not able to officially confirm whether or not they believe the remains found yesterday evening to be related to the other remains found Wednesday morning.
