Police say a woman was found dead inside a trash compactor at a luxury residential building in Manhattan’s Union Square.
Crime scene investigators were on the scene at 1 Irving Place Tuesday evening, collecting evidence in the bizarre and grisly death. Police say it’s not clear yet how the 48-year-old woman died, but her body was found at around 5 p.m.
Her purse was found near the trash chute where it appears she went in.
Neighbors said they initially thought the police presence had something to do with the building’s famous resident, Anthony Weiner. The disgraced former congressman is still listed as a resident at the building, though he’s currently serving time in prison for sexting an underage girl.
On Tuesday night Trump-hating FBI lawyer Lisa Page and her legal counsel announced she will not appear before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday despite a Congressional subpoena.
The House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed Lisa Page to appear in a closed-door interview Wednesday.
Page’s lawyer argued her client wasn’t given enough time to prepare for the interview and was not allowed to review requested documents at the FBI on Tuesday.
Rep. Jim Jordan
Lisa Page ignores congressional subpoena, once again showing the double standard. One set of rules for regular Americans, a different set for the Swamp!
But now we know that is a lie.
Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows tweeted out this morning that Lisa Page and her attorneys DID Review the requested documents at the FBI on Tuesday despite what they told the media.
