The remains of a girl have been discovered in a plastic container covered in concrete four years after she is believed to have died in Everett, Washington.

The body of the 4-year-old was kept at home and covered in concrete to control the smell, relatives told police according to the Mirror.

Police believe the girl's mother and her then-boyfriend had a history with law-enforcement and panicked when she died.

Q13 Fox reports that instead of reporting the death, the couple wrapped the girl's body up and put it in the container.

Police found the body after executing a search warrant on Saturday.

Cause of death was yet to be determined and no arrests have been made.
