Mystery as woman’s burning body is found by worker in a shopping cart in LA – as cops probe if she was burned alive

A WOMAN'S burning body was found stuffed inside a shopping cart in Los Angeles' Chinatown, according to reports.

Cops have launched an investigation after the blaze was spotted by a worker just before 5am Tuesday morning.

They’re unsure if the woman died before she was put inside the cart.

The victim has not yet been identified and officers are not sure if she was homeless.

LAPD Lt. Ryan Rabbett said: “The fire was still burning – that person did use a fire extinguisher to put out that fire.”

Cops say that the woman's death is suspicious.

Rabbett added: "We don't know if this is homeless-related. We don't know if it's gang-related."

CCTV footage from the scene appeared to show a man with a bicycle, but it hasn't been released by cops.
