According to reports, a man in Manatee County, FL, stored a trash can for a friend for two months and opened it after the owner never returned to retrieve the can. Upon opening the trash can, the unidentified man found a badly decomposed human body inside.
“We’re going to do an autopsy,” said Manatee County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Randy Warren. “The guy holding this trash can said that he thought it was a container of personal items. He was told by the owner of the can, ‘I’ll be back for it later on.'” Authorities haven’t named any suspects, but the investigation continues. “If we find there is something here that leads to a person of interest, we’ll put it out, Warren said. “Detectives need some time to figure things out.”
