It was early Thursday morning when police found the body of 35-year-old Gloriz Polanco-Ramos inside the trash bin.
Police have questioned several people in this case but, so far, there have been no arrests.
Family members of Polanco-Ramos were at her Roebling Ave. home in Trenton on Friday packing up her things.
The Dumpster in which her body was found is in the alley just around the corner from her home.
"I think it's horrible to find out something like that happened around here," said neighboor Brenda Rodriguez.
"You always see everybody on the porch," said neighbor Willie Collazo. "There's a couple of guys that live there, guess she was helping them out and they'd help her out with bills and everything."
Neighbors describe the victim as a good mother to her sons, ages 3, 6 and 10. The older boys were there on Friday as their father, Alex Leiva, prepared to move them out.
Detectives continue to interview those closest to Polanco-Ramos, including a boyfriend who lived with her, the other men in the house and an ex-husband.
"It's an ongoing, fluid investigation. The detectives are looking at every lead and they are possibly going in a certain direction with a person of interest," said Sgt. Tom McDonough of the Trenton Police.
Police found the body after a tipster call to say they'd heard a loud argument then saw a man put a body in the dumpster. Neighbors are anxious for the killer to be caught.
"Where's he at? He could go kill somebody else and put them in a Dumpster," said neighbor Donna Polinki. "It's sickening."
