What a terribly queer affair and very upsetting

All the hallmarks of a classic Yak hit. The moral is to always pay the "protection" money.

Headline sounds like the man and the body are two separate things! Lol

If there were no signs of injury, he could have been strangled by bare hands. But if he was naked when he died, he could have been strangled by a man or, a woman during their love making. But he could only have been moved and dumped in the dumpster by a very strong man or, a very strong woman. The person who dumped him must have expected the machinery in the dumpster to crush his body before it was thrown into the fire disposal unit. But since the body was found in the dumpster, the story of the naked man in the dumpster has only just begun.

Sounds more like a guy rented a hooker had a cardiac arrest and was dumped, probably to avoid investigation where the woman might be illegal etc... guess we kinda need to wait for the autopsy results.

Intriguing, but alas we will probably never hear any more.

Not an obvious murder victim, though poison is still a possibility still in play.

A body in a dumpster is not the normal waste, but why naked? Raises questions of possible efforts to obscure identity. Also therefor less likely to be a tramp/homeless person who crept in to sleep in comparative warmth and died (read of such a case a few years back).

We could speculate on this for ages!

MumbaiRocks! - Wow! Suicide?

Sure! Case closed! Scratch that one off. Don't want any unsolved murders messing up the crime statistics!

@garypen….well done, you could be a detective.

I'm probably overqualified.

The condition and location of the body are certainly suspicious.
