Homicide investigation underway after body of Framingham worker found in business’ trash area

FRAMINGHAM, Mass — A homicide investigation is underway after the body of a worker in Framingham was found behind the business Saturday night, the Middlesex District Attorney’s office said Sunday.

Framingham police responded to a business at Shoppers World Worcester Road around 10:00 p.m. after a deceased man was found in the trash area behind a building, according to the Middlesex District Attorney’s office.

Officials say the victim is around 30 years old and had been working at the business last night. The man, who has not been identified, had obvious trauma to his body, the DA’s office says.

“The case has been referred to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine cause of death,” the Middlesex District Attorney’s office said in a statement. “This investigation is being conducted by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, Massachusetts State Police Detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s Office and Framingham Police.”

Frequent customers at Shoppers World said they felt on edge Sunday.

“I’ve been coming here for 30 years and have never heard anything like this happen in this area,” one shopper told Boston 25

“I generally think of this area to be very safe and good place to be so hearing this is disturbing and kind of shocking,” Mena Bakhit said.

One employee at Shopping World who wished to remain anonymous said it’s such a busy area, a homicide is almost impossible to think about.

“I gotta work here so I have to be here,” he said. “Definitely a little on edge you don’t know what to expect anything can happen at any time.”

Anyone with information about the crime or who saw something unusual in the area of 1 Worcester Road Saturday night is urged to call Framingham police at 508-532-5923
