The gruesome discovery was made just 10 miles from the home where Ariel Castro allegedly held three women captive for nearly a decade until they were able to escape in May.
Despite the arrest of a suspect people in the East Cleveland neighborhood said they are still anxious.
"Something like this is very upsetting, not only for me but for my children and grandchildren," East Cleveland resident Bernadette Bass said.
Another resident said the discovery has convinced her it's time to find a new place to live.
"I have three daughters of my own and me and I do walk and go to the store, so it's kind of scary out here," the woman said. "I'm about ready to leave. Matter of fact I am moving."
