LAFAYETTE — A man whose body was found among trash hauled away by a garbage truck in Lafayette has been identified as a construction worker from an Indianapolis suburb, a coroner said Wednesday.
Tippecanoe County Coroner Carrie Costello said after conducting an autopsy that the body is that of Shawn Kaiser, a construction worker from Zionsville, just northwest of Indianapolis.
She said the cause and manner of Kaiser’s death are pending toxicology reports, the Journal & Courier reported.
Lafayette officers were called about 8 a.m. Monday to a business after employees found what appeared to be a large amount of blood in a dumpster after it was emptied, police said.
Officers stopped a garbage truck and directed it to a transfer station, where police searched through the trash it was hauling and found the man’s body.
The case remains under investigation.
