The county coroner arrived on scene at approximately 11:10 a.m, confirming that an unidentified female was discovered on Division Street in Mishawaka behind Pasquale Rulli's.
Neighbors state they saw a body removed from the dumpster.
The parents of a missing girl believe it may be their daughter, Breana Rouhselang, but the coroner has not yet confirmed the identity of the victim.
I spoke with the family of the victim who confirm it was Breana Rouhselang found behind Pasquale Rulli’s this morning. They said she was 6 months pregnant and a junior at Mishawaka High School. So very sad https://t.co/BpXvtsF0HA— Tiffany Salameh ABC57 (@tiffanysalameh) December 9, 2018
