Yonkers Workers Find Suitcase of Remains

NBC New York

The site of the discovery of remains found in a suitcase was an active crime scene Monday night.

Police are investigating the discovery of remains inside a suitcase in Westchester County Monday afternoon.

A Department of Public Works crew was clearing brush in the area of Sprain Road and Chatham Terrace at about 1:30 p.m. when workers discovered a suitcase with a "foul smell," according to Yonkers police.

Both police and the medical examiner responded, and the medical examiner now has the suitcase with the remains, which were initially believed to be human, according to police.

"It's kind of scary," said a neighbor. "Kids come down this way and I usually walk my dog here."

The investigation is ongoing.
