Ala. woman found dead, stuffed in plastic box

Posted:

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Birmingham police have identified a woman whose body was found stuffed inside a plastic storage container.

Authorities say 61-year-old Patricia McClain, of Morris, was found Sunday and her body's state of decomposition suggests she may have died weeks ago.

Police say 38-year-old Charles Jordan is charged with murder and is being held on $60,000 bond in the county jail. It's unclear if he has an attorney.

Police say they're investigating the woman's death as a homicide, but it's unclear exactly how McCain was killed.

Police say the two were acquaintances and suspect the two had been using drugs.
