    Authorities said the body was discovered Wednesday at Early's on Park Ave. Sources told the NBC10 Boston Investigators the body was badly decomposed.

    According to those sources, the van was parked at the tow yard for about a week.

    "It hits so close to home," one neighbor said.

    Detectives spent hours gathering evidence at the scene late Wednesday afternoon.

    It was not clear who called for the tow truck, but it was towed from the Advance Auto Parts about a half mile down the road. The manager there says he didn't see anything suspicious.

    "I come in every morning here between 6:30 and 7 a.m.," said Kevin Renaud. "I would have noticed it."
