Security footage also shows the woman walking into Abedin and Weiner’s apartment building shortly before she was found inside the trash compactor, PIX11 reported.
According to the Daily Mail: Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin have owned an apartment at the address for 16 years, which was listed for rent at $11,900 a month on the same day he pleaded guilty to sexting a 15-year-old girl.
Huma Abedin also filed for divorce that same day, however the divorce was never finalized and they have since rekindled their relationship.
The listing, posted on May 19, 2017, was taken down just days later, though it is unclear as to whether the estranged couple found a renter, or if the property was taken off the market for other reasons.
The woman has not been publicly identified as police work to notify her family. Her purse was found nearby the chute she entered.
Police have refused to rule out “high profile arrests”.
Their modern apartment, located on the 14th and 15th floors, has a view that overlooks Union Square Park and extends out over the midtown skyline.
There are 670 units in the apartment block, divided into four blocks: Gramercy, Village, Park, and University. There is a communal pool, gym and grassy rooftop for residents to enjoy.
Neighbors at the luxury apartment block told NBC when police arrived on Tuesday evening, they believed it was related to Weiner’s conviction.
The former congressman, currently behind bars after being found guilty of production of child pornography, is eligible to begin his three years supervised release in August 2019.
