McMINNVILLE, Ore. — Authorities say a woman’s body was transported in a garbage truck to a landfill in Yamhill County, where a worker found it.
There was no immediate report about how the woman died. The medical examiner scheduled an autopsy Friday.
Capt. Tim Svenson of the Yamhill County sheriff’s office says the worker saw what he thought was a manikin roll from the side of the blade of a piece of heavy equipment spreading the load at the Riverbend Landfill on Thursday afternoon. When he looked closer, he saw it was a corpse.
He says the body has been identified through fingerprints, and relatives are being notified.
He says investigators searched her Salem apartment.
