An investigation is underway after Philadelphia police say a body was found in the trunk of a vehicle on Tuesday afternoon.

An employee of Superior Automotive was cleaning up outside when he smelled a foul odor and discovered the body in the trunk.

"I got a call from an employee saying he found a body. I thought he was joking," said Joe Swan with Superior Automotive back in July.

Police say surveillance video shows the victim had been killed at that location on July 18 about 4 a.m.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS.
