ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - A body that may have been dumped in a garbage bin has been found at an Orange County trash sorting facility.
Anaheim police tell the Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/1o30S1Q ) that a worker found the body on a conveyor belt at the Republic Services plant around 10:30 a.m. Friday.
Sgt. Allan Roman says the naked body was discovered face down and partially covered in trash on a belt where recyclables are sorted from trash and yard waste.
Authorities haven't determined the sex of the body. There's no immediate word on the cause of death but a homicide investigation is underway.
Roman says the facility collects up to 6,000 tons of trash daily from northern Orange County and southern Los Angeles County.
