BREA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a driver made a grisly discovery in the Orange County city of Brea - a body in a trash can.
Police tell the Orange County Register that the green trash container was dumped in a remote area along Brea Canyon Road. A motorist had seen it for more than a week before deciding to investigate Friday afternoon.
The driver opened the can, saw the body and called police.
Authorities say the body is that of a male but there's no word on the age, race or cause of death.
However, investigators treating the death as a homicide.
