The body was found wrapped in two bed sheets with the hands crossed across the chest.

Around 4.25 p.m. a woman made the discovery while walking at the intersection of Camille Street and Anderson Terrace.

The lower half of the corpse was wrapped in a multi-coloured sheet and the upper part was wrapped in a green sheet, police said.

Yellow plastic bags covered the head and chest area.

The hands were crossed on the chest, and bound with duct tape around the chest and back.
