“It’s scary especially when parents are coming by with their kids. We don’t want little kids to see that because that’s scary for them,” said Boston resident Richard Dunshee.
“I think it’s terrible,” Bonnie Jones another resident added. “But as I said I believe it happened last year also and perhaps even the year before. It’s unusual, but it has happened before.”
The Medical Examiner’s office took the body from the scene and working on identification.
Although have not released the person's name, police are saying the body does not appear to be connected to the missing 23-year-old from Southborough.
