Police are investigating after discovering human remains inside a Brooklyn apartment.

Investigators say officers were called to a home located at 4702 15th Avenue in Borough Park Monday following a complaint of a foul odor.

Police say they found a 28-year-old woman living in the apartment which was in disarray and filled with garbage.

She was taken to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation after telling officers she wanted to harm herself.

Police are investigating whether the remains belong to the woman's 61-year-old mother.

The Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy to identify the remains and determine the cause of death.
