DETROIT (WJBK) -

A torso was found at an abandoned, burned out home on Anderdon at Charlevoix on Detroit's east side.

Detroit police said around 11:00 a.m. Friday, homicide investigators went to that location while conducting a follow-up investigation on a case.  There they discovered the remains.  Sources familiar with the case said the remains are those of a woman whose body parts were discovered in a bathtub at the Philip C. Sims Senior Apartments last week.

72-year-old Alphonso Jackson has been charged with disinterment of a body and concealing a death in that case, but he has not been charged with her murder.

Neighbors said the house has been burned out for at least a couple of years and like so many other homes in the city should have been torn down long ago.

    The case was originally about workplace discrimination. Now it's dragged on for more than a decade despite the case appearing to be one that the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation can't win.
