Suspected Human Remains in Brentwood Dumpster Turn Out to Be Raw Chicken

After officers investigated the report of possible human remains found in a Brentwood dumpster, they discovered it was actually just raw chicken meat, the Los Angeles Police Department said Saturday.

LAPD officers initially were called to a "death investigation" in the 11800 block of Kiowa Avenue Saturday afternoon after a pungent odor was reported.

When they arrived, the LAPD used a cadaver dog to investigate. The only death that had occurred was that of something seen in the frozen food section: officers found raw chicken meat in the dumpster, and cleared the scene.

No word on who was suspected of dumping the chicken's remains.
