BRIDGEWATER (CBS) – The body of a woman was found tied up and burned late Tuesday night in Bridgewater and police are looking for help in their investigation.

The body was discovered just before midnight near the train tracks at Oak and Crapo streets, according to Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz.

Cruz said it appears the woman was killed somewhere else and her body was brought to the tracks and burned.

“She was bound, her hands were tied behind her back and her hands were in some fashion tied toward her feet from behind,” he told reporters at a news conference Wednesday.

The woman has not been identified yet.

Police found the body while responding to a call of a suspicious black SUV in the area.

“This is obviously a very concerning incident for this community. I will say all of our investigative resources are being devoted to determining who the perpetrator or perpetrators of this crime are,” said Bridgewater Police Chief Christopher Delmonte.

Ethan Ellis is still wrapping his head around the fact that that the victim’s burning body was found about 400 feet from his front door.

“Everyone’s very shooken up, it’s very troubling,” Ellis says. “Many people have lived here for 40, 50 years or more, and they’re just not used to something like this even being a possibility.”
