Death of man in trash pile apparently accidental

(KANSAS CITY, Mo., AP) — Kansas City police say the death of a man whose body was found at a recycling warehouse apparently was accidental.

The man was identified as 36-year-old Seth Boyer of Olathe.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1gcXPNS) Boyer’s parents said Wednesday their son was mentally ill and homeless, and he sometimes slept in trash bins.

Police believe Boyer was alive when the trash bin he was in was picked up early Tuesday. Workers found his body when the load was taken to the private recycling warehouse.

Police say Boyer had some broken bones but his body showed no signs of foul play.

Boyer graduated from Maranatha Christian Academy in Shawnee and had a degree in communications from Avila University, and worked as a production assistant at KSHB-TV for two years.
