Death and Hillary Clinton associates… they just seem to go together.
On Tuesday, Huma Abedin’s neighbors were shocked to find a dead body in a trash compactor.
The apartment building is located in Manhattan’s Union Square.
Early Tuesday evening, an as-of-yet-unidentified woman was discovered in the trash compactor at the building.
At approximately 5pm local time, authorities were called about the body.
When police arrived, they found a 48-year-old woman unconscious and unresponsive.
Police believe the woman entered or was thrown into the compactor on the 27th floor.
This conclusion was reached because they found her purse in the landing area of the compact room on that floor of the building.
Police are still investigating the death and have not yet released any other details about the woman or any details related to how she died.
Huma and Anthony
Huma Abedin, as you may recall, was Hillary Clinton’s right hand during the presidential election.
Her husband, Anthony Weiner, is serving time for sexual misconduct charges.
According to court documents, Weiner had been involved in a “sexting” relationship with an underaged girl.
In September, Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in prison.
Even though he is in jail, he is still listed as the resident at one of the apartments in the building.
Initially, Abedin was set to divorce Weiner, but the petition was withdrawn in January.
Pundits surmised they were going to remain married so they could invoke spousal privilege to protect communications that could harm Hillary Clinton in any court case.
