RENO, NV - Reno police detectives are retracing the route of a Waste Management garbage truck trying to determine where it might have picked up the body of a man Monday morning.
The body, described as a white male, was found on a conveyor belt at the company's recycling plant at Sutro Street and Commercial Row shortly before noon.
Police say it apparently had arrived in a truck which had collected refuse from dumpsters somewhere in the community that morning.
How long the body had been in the dumpster or even which dumpster it was in isn't known, nor is the cause of death.
The man apparently carried identification, as police say his name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
An autopsy has been scheduled.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Reno Police Department at 334-2115 or Secret Witness at 322-4900.
