Dead body found at Okeechobee landfill Saturday

OKEECHOBEE, Fla. -- Detectives are investigating a dead body that was found Saturday at the Okeechobee Waste Management Landfill at 10800 NE 128th Avenue.

Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the landfill at approximately 11:25 Saturday night in reference to a reported dead person.

The body was discovered by a worker at the landfill who tipped the trash out of the semi and inspected the recently dumped load of garbage, according to the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office.

OCSO says the worker was unsure at first if the body was real or if it was a mannequin.

The driver of the semi carrying the body picked up the load in Palm City at Martin County Solid Waste, according to Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office.

Detectives are continuing their investigation.
