A woman's body was found stuffed inside a plastic bag when it washed up on shore in Gravesend Bay Sunday evening.

A shopping cart with a plastic bag inside it washed up on the rocky parts of Bath Beach, near Bay 20th Street and Shore Parkway, just before 7 p.m. Sunday.

Officers arrived and discovered a woman's body inside the plastic bag.

Local residents told PIX11 News that Sunday's investigation centered on the rocky shoreline of Bath Beach and portions of the promenade were roped off with crime scene tape.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday to determine the woman's cause of death. The woman's body has yet to be identified.

The investigation is ongoing.
