Milton, WV (AP) -- Police are hoping an autopsy can help them find whoever stashed a body in a garbage can and dumped it along Interstate 64 near Milton.

The state medical examiner's office planned to conduct the autopsy Tuesday.

Cabell County Sheriff Tom McComas says identifying the body and determining the cause of death could lead police to the killer.

A State Division of Highways worker discovered the industrial-sized garbage can Monday at the edge of brush, about 10 feet to 15 feet from the interstate.

It was sealed with duct tape and there was blood on it.

McComas says investigators believe the garbage can was dumped sometime over the weekend.

    Sluth. don't you think the police would have thought of this? Clearly, it's not her... but that won't stop others from trying to tie the two situations together.
