The last thing to expect in a shopping cart is a dead body, but that is exactly what was found in one shopping cart in Brooklyn, New York, according to press reports.

A man was found dead inside the shopping cart, which was tipped over in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New York, police said.

The unidentified victim, who appeared to have been beaten to death, was discovered about 4:30 a.m., in front of 750 Madison St., police said.

His body was partially covered by a camouflage bag.

He had trauma to the torso and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

No arrests have been made, and police are waiting for the coroner to determine the cause of death.

Investigators believe the victim died nearby, and was abandoned by someone who tried to move the body in the shopping cart and gave up after the shopping cart tipped over to one side, police said.
