An investigation into the death of a man found inside a garbage bin in Edam late Sunday morning suggested that no foul play was involved. Police say the man was a 39-year-old from Muntendam, a small village in Groningen over 170 kilometers away from where he was found dead.
The body was found with its legs sticking out of a wheelie bin on the grounds of a meeting center used by the Edam-Vollendam municipality, and managed by the regional water board. “We live here in the street and were sent photos by our neighbors,” a local resident told broadcaster NH. “We were shocked.”
