 SEATTLE- Seattle police say they have taken a suspect in custody in connection with the body of man found in a shopping cart Thursday in a Rainier Valley neighborhood.

The 46-year-old man was arrested and taken into the King County Jail for the investigation of murder, as well as an unrelated felony warrant.

On Thursday, neighbors noticed a stranger was pushing a shopping cart through their neighborhood, and when he was asked what he was doing, the man disappeared.

Witnesses said flies were buzzing around the cart and human legs could be seen sticking out of the pile of debris.

The victim has not been identified, but police say the victim and suspect knew each other.
