Three dismembered bodies, including one of a young child, were tragically discovered on Wednesday having been thrown in a dumpster which was set alight.

Fire crews in the city of Fort Worth, Texas, were called following reports of a burning dumpster at around 6.17am, explained the Fort Worth Police Department.

After they distinguished the blaze, firefighters made the gruesome discovery. They found the charred bodies of a young child, a teenage or adult female, and an adult male.

They were found in the 3100 block of Bonnie Drive, an area of western Fort Worth which is semi-rural and has industrial buildings. The dumpster itself was located in front of a storage business.

Authorities have identified the adult male as 42-year-old David Lueras, who they said "is known to frequent the Dallas area and has some ties to the Hurst, Euless, and Bedford area."

The bodies of the young child and the female are yet to be identified.

"The bodies were burned and heavily dismembered and there are body parts that are unaccounted for," said the Fort Worth Police Department in a statement on Friday.

"The dismembered condition of the bodies is making the identification process difficult."

The three deaths are being investigated as a triple homicide, but no arrests have been made thus far. Police are calling on the public to come forward with any information.

Their statement continued: "Identifying the perpetrators and suspects of this triple murder is the primary goal of this investigation.

"The Fort Worth Police Department's Homicide Unit is requesting public assistance in this investigation; any information related to a missing person or persons fitting the description of the victims is appreciated."

The police have not released any more information at this time.

Anybody with information regarding the slayings has been asked to contact the homicide unit directly at 817-392-4330. Callers can also remain anonymous by contacting CrimeStoppers at 817-469-8477.
