Chicago – Police in Chicago say they’ve discovered the dismembered body of an 81-year-old woman in her home.

Human remains were found in bins Sunday after a real estate agent who had been trying to reach the woman for days noticed a foul odor and called police.

Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson says the crime scene was “very clean.” Investigators are assuming the woman was killed in her home. Her name hasn’t been released.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says someone put a lot of effort into a “horrific act.”
