Officers are investigating a dead body that was found stuffed into a large garbage bag in a Sunnyvale neighborhood on Sunday morning, according to the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety. The bag, which was tucked between two bushes next to the sidewalk in the 800 block of Ticonderoga Drive, was reported to the department at about 10 a.m., Capt.Dave Verbrugge said.
Blood appeared to be coming out of the loosely cinched bag, and when officers peered inside they saw part of the body, he said. The Santa Clara County Crime Lab and the Santa Clara County medical examiner’s office also responded to the scene and took custody of the body. An autopsy will be performed to determine the gender of the victim and cause of death, Verbrugge said.The Santa Clara County medical examiner’s office has not released any information.
