Police in Florida say the body of a young girl was found in a trash bin.

According to a Miami Herald report, Miami-Dade Police spokesman Argemis Colome said the man called 911 Sunday after finding the body of a girl in the trash bin at his Homestead apartment complex.

Colome said the girl was between 3 and 8 years old. Her body was taken to the medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.

Colome said it wasn’t clear whether the body matched any reports about missing children. He said no one immediately came forward with any information identifying the child or explaining what had happened to her.

Investigators removed the trash bin. It wasn’t clear when the trash had last been collected.
