CHICAGO — A Chicago police source tells WGN News that dismembered body parts found in a garage on the far Southeast Side may be the remains of a man missing from the neighborhood for more than a year.

A woman reported a strange odor coming from a trash bag in the garage near 133rd and Avenue M in the Hegewisch neighborhood Sunday.

She looked in the bag and found the man’s remains wrapped in a blanket.

Detectives are waiting for autopsy results on whether it may be a man from the same block who was last seen in June of 2013.
