Police were called to the apartment at 1 Irving Place in Union Square around 5 p.m. after a building maintenance man discovered the 48-year-old woman’s body stuffed into the mechanical compactor.
The medical examiner is currently working on determining the victim’s cause of death which officials say will later be made public.
According to NBC 4 New York, the victim’s purse was found nearby but no information on whether a robbery occurred was offered.
The convicted sexter and his wife lived in the building for 16 years before it was listed for sale in May of 2017 on the very day Weiner was sentence to prison for sending nude pics to a minor.
