Body found in trash bin in creek near Columbus

COLUMBUS, Ohio  — Authorities near Columbus are trying to identify the body of a woman found in a trash bin that was partially submerged in a creek.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s office says the body was discovered Friday in a curbside-style trash bin with wheels.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that investigators had to work fast to get the trash bin out of the Big Darby Creek before a storm hit the area Friday night.

They used a motorized inflatable boat to retrieve the bin with the body.

The sheriff’s office says the victim was an adult female, but it’s not clear how she died.
