Police say the dismembered bodies of a man and woman have been found in several garbage bags along a residential street in Linden.
Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow says the bodies were found among four cloth laundry bags and two black garbage bags that were left on the street, possibly since Thursday. Romankow says autopsies are under way. The male is believed to be Hispanic and between the ages of 30 and 35. Details about the female victim are not yet known. Police received a phone call around 9:40 a.m. Monday from a resident reporting the bags were left in the street.
Police and public works employees responded, and a public works employee opened one of the bags and saw body parts inside.
