Partly dissolved body in barrel of acid found in Tuscany (ANSA) - Pistoia, March 27 - A man's body, partly dissolved in acid and in a state of decomposition, was found inside a warehouse in the Tuscan town of Serravalle Pistoiese, police said Thursday.

The remains were found stuffed in a barrel hidden in the rear of a warehouse and were not easily visible; however, police said a powerful stench raised concerns.

The remains were removed from the building, which had been rented to a third party, and an investigation is continuing.

Serravalle Pistoiese is located near Pistoia in Tuscany, and about 35 km north of Florence.
