BUSHWICK - Police are investigating after a woman's body was found between two parked cars in Bushwick Monday morning.

The woman's body was found before 9 a.m. in a parking lot on Palmetto Avenue. The body was found face down and wedged between two cars at the back of the lot.

According to police, the victim is a black woman in her 30s, but they have not been able to identify her. Investigators spent the day searching for evidence at the scene.

Neighbors say the parking lot is locked at all times, and people who keep cars inside have keys. "Everyone has to have their own key, open the gate, and then close it every time they leave," says neighborhood resident Pedro Gonzalez.

Police will continue to investigate and attempt to identify the victim, while the medical examiner determines exactly how she died.
