ST. HELENS, Ore. -- Police found the body of a 26-year-old St. Helens man in a Dumpster behind a Walgreen's pharmacy Monday morning, police said.

Police were called just after 8 a.m. to the report of a body in a Dumpster at 175 S. Columbia River Highway, said St. Helens Police Chief Terry Moss.

Officers at the scene found the dead man, later identified as Ryan Donald Neveau of St. Helens, had been trapped under the heavy steel lid and suffocated.

"While the investigation leaves questions regarding Mr. Neveau’s intentions, the investigators are not suspicious about the manner in which he died," Moss said.
