DA: Woman's Body Found Bound And Burned Near Train Tracks In Bridgewater

This article is more than 5 years old.

Police are investigating after a woman's body was found bound and burned in Bridgewater Tuesday night.

Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz said Wednesday that the remains were found just before midnight Tuesday near train tracks.

He says the unidentified woman was found with her hands tied behind her back and to her feet. Police discovered the body down an embankment in a relatively secluded area after responding to a call of a suspicious vehicle.

"We do not believe at this point that there is any danger to people in the community," Cruz said. "However this investigation has just begun and people should understand that."

Cruz says investigators believe the body was burned at the scene but the killing likely happened elsewhere.
