Body found in Youngstown South Side garbage can

YOUNGSTOWN — When residents at a Glenwood Avenue home opened their garbage can, they found a body.

Youngstown Police Lt. Doug Bobovnyik said the residents noticed their garbage can was in a parking lot across the street. They wheeled it back, realized what was inside, and called police about 6:05 p.m. today.

By 7 p.m., more than a dozen police, paramedics and coroner’s investigators gathered around a city-issued garbage can outside the home in Glenwood’s 1800 block.

Detectives do not have a cause of death at this time, but they have not ruled out foul play and it will be investigated as a homicide.
