Bodies of mom, toddler found in Mass. trash bin
BROCKTON, Mass. – The bodies of a woman and her 2-year-old son have been found dumped in a trash container near their Massachusetts home. The woman's body was stuffed inside a duffel bag.
Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz says the 25-year-old woman's body was found after police received an anonymous telephone call Sunday night. He says the toddler's body was nearby. He won't say whether the toddler's body also was in a bag or whether there were signs of trauma.
He describes a "terrible crime scene" near the family's home in Brockton, a city of about 100,000 residents just south of Boston.
The woman had immigrated to the United States. She last was seen alive Thursday at her home.
Investigators say they don't know when the bodies were dumped. They have questioned several people but have made no arrests.
