NYPD: Body of woman wrapped in tarp found outside Flatbush building
A woman's body was discovered outside a Flatbush apartment building Wednesday morning.
Police say they received a 911 call just before 4 a.m. reporting what appeared to be a dead body wrapped in a tarp next to a U-Haul van in front of the building.
The body of a woman was removed by medical examiners from in front of 550 East 21st St.
Sources say a 68-year-old man was seen trying to load the body into the van. Crime scene investigators spent most of the morning searching and taking photos in and around where the van was parked.
News 12 is told the man was taken into police custody for questioning. Sources say he told them that the woman had overdosed.
Police tell News 12 the medical examiner will determine what caused her death and that the man is still being questioned.
