UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS -

Police have made an arrest after the human remains of a woman were found inside of a grocery cart in the Bronx, officials say.

Darryl Orr, 57, of the Bronx, was arrested after police executed a search warrant at his Walton Avenue home Thursday.

He is facing charges for concealing a human corpse.

In a video shared exclusively with News 12, investigators can be seen inspecting the cart containing the remains at the corner of E. 182nd Street and Jerome Avenue in University Heights around 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Police say two men called 911 when they found a black garbage bag covering a box containing the human remains inside the cart.

Investigators initially reported the remains belong to a male, however, they say a medical examiner determined they belong to a 27-year-old female.

Police say Orr and the woman knew each other and she could be seen on surveillance video entering his home.

Orr also faces multiple drug charges. 

A medical examiner will determine the exact cause of the woman's death.

Police have not released the identity of the woman but say her last known address was in Massachusetts.

    The deadly mudslides that ravaged Montecito came a month after a massive wildfire drove many residents from their homes and blackened the nearby mountains. With no vegetation left to absorb the rain, the slides came quickly in the midst of a torrential downpour.
