DETROIT (WXYZ) — New video has been released for you to help police find a person of interest connected to a woman's body being found inside a dumpster.

It was on Wednesday that a 26-year-old woman was found on Detroit's east side. Police say the woman was visiting her boyfriend at Parkview Apartments in Detroit.

Surveillance video shows the woman enter an elevator with an unknown man. But the man in the video is not her boyfriend, police say.

Police do not believe this man lives at the apartment complex. They are working to find out how he got onto the gated property. Police also released video outside the building showing his dark-colored car.

People living and working near Parkview Apartments say this horrifying discovery has left them on edge.

"I was like 'Oh my God'. Scared to go up and down the elevators all day," said one female tenant.

"It’s very surprising that happened out here because there’s a lot of older folks homes around. It’s pretty quiet so I wouldn’t expect it," said Nathaniel Woods, who works nearby.

If you have any information about the crime, call Detroit Police Department Homicide Unit at 313-596-2260, or CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
