Man found dead at Humboldt Park warehouse

There was an active police scene at a Humboldt Park warehouse Friday after human remains were found.

Initial reports indicated that a severed head arrived at a warehouse located in the 4300 block of West Ohio Street around 11 a.m. 

Police then confirmed that a man was found dead on the premises. Police said the man was roughly 35-40 years old.

According to scanner traffic, the body was found "mashed up."

Detectives have been speaking to employees and reviewing surveillance videos throughout the day.


One employee said off-camera that the body arrived by railcar.

Workers at a logistics company directly across the street from the warehouse also monitored the scene throughout the day.

"I saw a bunch of cop cars, and I'm like what's going on? And then I, you know, hear everyone start talking and they're saying they either found a head or just a body," one worker from the logistics company said.

According to police scanner alerts, the body arrived from Mexico.

The circumstances of the incident are still currently under investigation.
