A woman was found dead on Tuesday evening inside of a trash compactor at Zeckendorf Towers.

Police said that the woman, whose name has not been released but was 48 years old, was discovered at 5 p.m. (Update: She has been identified as Lara Prychenko.) She was pronounced dead at the condo building, which is located at 1 Irving Place and overlooks Union Square.

The woman was seen on surveillance footage entering her building shortly before she was found, according to a source cited by Pix11.

A police spokesperson said she didn’t have any additional information about the condition of the woman’s body or if the case is being investigated as a homicide.

Update: Police said the incident at this time appears to be an accident or a suicide.

An employee at the building’s front desk hung up on a reporter when called for comment.
