Decomposing Body Found Under Porch Of Winthrop Home

WINTHROP (CBS) – Police are trying to figure out who put a decomposing body under the porch of a Winthrop home.

Investigators found the body Tuesday afternoon after receiving reports from neighbors about a foul odor coming from the house on Winthrop Street.

Right now, it’s classified as an “unattended death,” but police say it is suspicious.

The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office said the remains appear to be those of an adult, but the age, gender, ethnicity, and cause of death are still a mystery.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
