A body of a woman in North Carolina who died while “dumpster diving” was found in a landfill, according to reports.
The body found Monday at Uwharrie Environmental in Montgomery County was believed to be Stephanie Cox, 30, Burlington police said in a post on social media.
The article goes on to state the following:
Cox had climbed into a trash container to look for reusable items, known as “dumpster diving.”
The police wrote in an update on Monday, “The search for Ms. Cox resumed today after weather conditions had prevented search efforts since Thursday February, 6th. Today at approximately 5:00 PM, remains believed to be Ms. Cox were located at Unharrie Environmental in Montgomery County. The Montgomery County Sheriffs Office will work with the local medical examiner and the State’s Medical Examiners Office on positive identification.”
In the original post, dated the previous Monday, Feb. 3, the police had written, “Family has confirmed that it was not uncommon for Cox to collect items from local dumpsters. Video evidence supports that Ms. Cox arrived at the Five Below on Thursday January 30, 2020 alone. A review of all associated video never shows others on the property until the truck arrived to service the dumpster.”
“This case brings to light the dangers associated with collections from dumpsters. The commonly known practice of “dumpster diving” is not safe,” the police report stated.
Human remains found in a landfill on Monday are believed to be those of a North Carolina woman who went missing in late January while “dumpster diving,” the Burlington Police Department said. https://t.co/CcpOtkFwgG
