Torso found in Phoenix Dumpster

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Medical examiners are set to do an autopsy on a body found in a north Phoenix Dumpster, hoping to find more clues about what happened.

Police were called to the scene near 51st Avenue and Bell Road on Saturday after neighbors complained of a bad smell.

Detectives say the remains of a man were found inside some sort of a container.

They don't know how long the body had been in the Dumpster and without the results of an autopsy officers have little information to work with.
