WASHINGTON, Neb. (AP) - A garbage truck driver has found a body at the landfill for the Omaha area.

The man was identified Wednesday as 57-year-old Lewis D. Doss, of Omaha. The Douglas County sheriff’s office says Doss was identified through his fingerprints and tattoos.

Authorities say the truck driver spotted what appeared to be human legs in his rear-view mirror as he dumped his load around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday at the landfill southwest of Washington.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Capt. Steve Glandt says investigators know where the truck had been earlier that morning but declined to share the information. Glandt says the man hadn’t been dead long and was fully clothed when he was found. Doss did not have any obvious injuries or trauma.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Thursday.
