Police say sanitation workers have discovered the remains of two bodies discarded in several garbage bags along a residential street in Linden.
Linden police Detective Lt. James Sarnicki tells The Star-Ledger of Newark that workers picking up the trash Monday around 9:45 a.m. saw a garbage bag that appeared to have a human body part protruding from it.
Police have not identified the remains, how they got there or how long they may have been there.
Sarnicki tells the newspaper the body parts don't seem badly decomposed.
A spokesman for the Union County Prosecutor's Office, which is assisting in the investigation, says autopsies are scheduled for Monday afternoon.
More details will be made available at a 3:45 p.m. press conference.
