Police: Man found in container at landfill killed himself

LORDSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a man found dead in a roll-off container at a northeast Ohio construction landfill killed himself, possibly weeks before his remains were found.

The body was discovered Friday at the Trumbull County landfill as a driver prepared to unload debris hauled from a construction site in Ravenna.

Lordstown Police Chief Brent Milhoan tells The Vindicator in Youngstown that authorities believe the man traveled to the site after leaving a medical facility in Ravenna. The container was at the construction site for over a month before it was removed.

The coroner's office has determined that the 45-year-old Mogadore man hanged himself. The death was ruled a suicide.
