ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) - A northern Illinois coroner says she believes bones and other material found in a garbage can outside an apartment is a partially decomposed body.

Winnebago County Coroner Sue Fiduccia tells the Rockford Register Star (https://bit.ly/29xgXAr ) the contents of the garbage can discovered in Rockford on Wednesday have been taken to the morgue. Police say the garbage can was found outside an apartment that belongs to someone who appears to be a “hoarder.” Fiduccia says items are stacked high throughout the apartment, making finding and determining what is evidence more difficult.

Fiduccia says she cannot say whether the remains are those of a man or a woman. She says it will take several days to come up with an identification and a cause of death.
