ST. LOUIS (AP) - Police say a homeless man found dead inside a trash bin apparently froze to death.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that police say the 54-year-old man was found dead late Monday. The bin was near a former brewery that has been transformed into apartments. Police say firefighters were in the area on an unrelated call when they were told that a body appeared to be in the bin. The man's name wasn't immediately released. Police say he was known as a homeless man in the area.
Police are awaiting the results of an autopsy to confirm the official cause of death.
