AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - Amarillo Police Department said today the body of the woman found in a trash truck was not the result of a homicide.

APD Cpl. Jeb Hilton said an autopsy showed no signs of foul play.

He also said it’s still unclear how the body ended up in a trash bin emptied into the truck, but nothing showed a crime had been committed.
