MANILA, Philippines – The chopped-up pieces of an unidentified victim were found at the Guadalupe Bridge along the boundary of Makati and Mandaluyong Sunday morning.

According to the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), the chopped-up body pieces were placed inside a plastic bag.

The plastic bag was repeatedly hit by several vehicles until it eventually ended up near a mall in Mandaluyong.

Various body parts of the victim scattered along the northbound lane of EDSA.

According to Rosalisa Flordeliz of the MMDA, they noticed the plastic bag early Sunday morning but thought it contained garbage.

A taxi was the first to hit the plastic bag, which was eventually evaded by other drivers as body parts scattered onto the streets.

The Makati police's initial investigation led them to believe that the victim may be male as there is a tattoo of the name "Rhea" on the victim's body.

The victim's body parts will be brought to the Filipinas Funeral Homes.

Makati police will also review the CCTV video of the incident in the hopes that they will discover who left the plastic bag along Guadalupe. They are also aiming to identify the vehicles that hit the plastic bag. - report from DZMM.
