A woman's body was found wrapped in a trash bag off Florida's Gulf Coast over the weekend.

The discovery about 12:40 p.m. Saturday off the coast of Egmont Key at the mouth of Tampa Bay was confirmed by the U.S. Coast Guard to FOX 13. Crews responded to recover the body, which was first found by fishermen. 

Witnesses said they were spear-fishing when they went for a dive. As they headed to the next spot, they found the trash bag. They tried to pick it up but quickly realized it was not trash.

After cutting the plastic and canvas bag that was inside, they said they saw skin and what was believed to be a bra strap or bikini. The witnesses said they made the distress call shortly after the discovery.
