KETTERING, Ohio (AP) — A body was found in a dumpster in Ohio, and a criminal investigation was started into the death, police said.

Kettering police were working to discover the circumstances surrounding the death of the person who was found in the large trash bin Saturday. Police in the Dayton suburb didn't immediately release information about the cause of death or the age or gender of the person.

Officers responded to the scene shortly before 1 p.m. Saturday after someone reported finding the body, police said in a release.

Investigators were looking to see if any surveillance video was available that could provide clues as to what happened, police spokesman Officer Joe Ferrell said.

He said no suspects were immediately identified.
