A woman's burned body was found in a Dumpster near Interstate 5 in Santa Fe Springs just after midnight Monday, police said.

Firefighters extinguishing a fire in the trash bin behind a furniture store in the 13100 block of Firestone Boulevard found the charred remains of a human body, according to a Whittier Police Department news release.

Investigators said the victim's hands and feet appeared to have been tied with some kind of extension or lamp cord. Officials also said the victim had two tattoos: a butterfly on her left shoulder and the name "David" on her right shoulder. Anyone with information is asked to call the Whittier Police Department at (562) 945-8250.
