A person of interest was taken into custody after a dead woman was found wrapped in a bloody bed sheet on Union Street on Thursday morning, NYPD officials and witnesses said.

The woman, whose name and age weren’t immediately released, was discovered about 1:46 a.m. outside 1635 Union St., near Troy Avenue with trauma on her body, police said.

She was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.

Neighbors on the Crown Heights block say the woman was a quiet, middle-aged woman who “never bothered anybody,” said Gaynor Williams, who saw her body near the trash bins outside her window early Thursday morning with bloody cuts on her neck and arm.

      A woman was beaten up and dragged in broad daylight and no one did anything to help her

      Hey man got punched in the jaw because he didn’t want to let the gang members in his home and they shut bullet holes through his walls

      All the above incidents took place in Melbourne Australia in a 24 hour period last week.

    Right across from where the body was found there is a shoe store that never opened. In the basement from the so called shoe store there’s a lot of noise going on there which sounds like wild parties. Maybe they are connected.
