Neighbors tell News 8 that they truck had been in the area for quite a while before they realized something was wrong.

“Nobody pay attention, but one of my friends, he started paying attention because of the smell. A smell. And that’s when he called the cops and that’s when they found the body in the truck,” said Susanna Alicea of New Britain.
