Having been referred to as human waste, I can sympathize with the former 44-year-old man from Artesia found in Rainbow Disposal's green waste transfer site in Huntington Beach Tuesday afternoon.
How he got there--beyond, hopefully, being first placed in the proper-colored bin dedicated to organic matter--is what's most on the mind of Huntington Beach Police detectives.
Employees of the facility at 17121 Nichols Lane discovered the body around 1:20 p.m. Tuesday, in a batch of green waste that came off a truck that arrived from Los Angeles County.

Police are withholding his name pending results from an autopsy today that will hopefully shed light on how the fellow passed.
