NEW details have emerged about the body of a woman locked in cement in a house for eight years.
Philadelphia police made the gruesome discovery last week while responding to a report of possible human remains.
Philadelphia police confirmed to Fox News Digital that they had discovered the remains.
“The victim’s identity and cause of death are unknown at this time,” the department said.
The woman’s body was found in the basement of the abandoned house, reports FOX Philadelphia.
Authorities believe they know the victim’s identity, the outlet reports.
However, they have not yet made their name publicly available.
Police never reportedly received a missing woman report, sources told FOX’s Jennifer Joyce.
The source also said it’s possible the woman’s remains have been in the home for eight years.
Neighbors reportedly watched the body being removed by officers in hazmat suits, NBC Philadelphia reports.
Investigators reportedly found a human foot buried under cement before pulling out the entire body, the outlet reports.
NBC confirmed Monday that the body was completely removed from the home.
“Finding something like that on this block when there’s a bunch of kids running around? It’s amazing,” a neighbor told NBC.
“It’s sad. And now Christmas is just around the corner.
“My heart goes out to the family, man. It is sad. It’s a sad day.”
