Milton, WV (AP) -- One lane of Interstate 64 near Milton is shut down while police investigate the discovery of a body in a garbage can along the highway.

Police say a State Division of Highways worker found the garbage can at about 11:30 a.m. Monday.

The garbage can was sealed with duct tape and there was blood on it.

Cabell County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Doug Ferguson told the Herald-Dispatch that authorities found a body inside the can but the gender and age haven't been determined.

Cabell County Sheriff Tom McComas says the garbage can was found about 10 feet to 30 feet off the highway.
