Phoenix police: Woman’s body found on belt in trash facility

Phoenix police are trying to identify a woman whose body was found at a trash facility and determine how she died

PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix police are trying to identify a woman whose body was found at a trash facility and determine how she died.



Officer James Holmes says workers who sort incoming items for recycling spotted the woman’s intact and clothed body on a conveyor belt Wednesday morning.

According to Holmes, there’s no indication of trauma on the body and that it appears whatever happened to the woman happened somewhere other than the trash facility.

Holmes says police are checking missing-persons reports and trying to determine where in Phoenix the body may have been picked up during collection of recycling materials.

Phoenix provides residents with separate containers for recycling materials and other trash.

The facility is located near South 27th Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road. It’s closed while police investigate.
