MARISSA PARRA: Eight hours later, police tape is still up from that gruesome discovery made in this South Shore alley. When streets and sanitation workers instead of finding trash in a garbage can, they found a body. On the 7,200 block of South Jeffrey Boulevard and South Shore, a man in his 40s, face down inside of a garbage can.

This isn't the middle of nowhere. We are surrounded by apartment buildings. Down there, Jefferey Boulevard, fairly busy street. We've seen a lot of traffic moving through here, where there's a busy strip mall just on the other side of this. We have spoken to a number of people. Nobody we saw said they knew anything, but they did say this comes as a shock. We've also seen police canvassing the area. If you know anything, they want to hear from you.

Reporting from South Shore, Marissa Parra, CBS 2 News.
