LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Officers responding to a call from a Lafayette business about large amount of blood inside a just-emptied dumpster stopped a garage truck and found a man’s body within the trash it was hauling.
Tippecanoe County Coroner Carrie Costello said Monday that authorities are investigating the man’s death as a possible homicide.
Lafayette police were called Monday morning to Home Acres Building Supplies after employees found what appeared to be a large amount of blood in its emptied dumpster.
Officers stopped a garbage truck and directed it to a transfer station, where they searched the trash and found the man’s body.
