The gruesome discovery happened at the Oaks on Bissonett Apartments on the 7000 block of Bissonett Street in southwest Houston.

Around 2:45 p.m. Sunday, investigators said a resident called to report a suspicious package with no label left in the apartment's parking lot. Inside the box, investigators discovered a woman’s body. 


Surveillance video eventually led investigators to arrest a man at the apartment complex. Authorities said the man was caught on video wheeling the U-haul box with a dolly from his unit into the parking lot by the dumpster. 

The medical examiner's office is now in the process of identifying the woman. 

Her identification hasn't been released.
