Just after 3:30 a.m. Thursday Porter Fire Department and MCHD were pulled out of their nice warm beds to respond to Loop 494 and Mitchell Ln. A trash truck driver called 911 and reported a body in the dumpster. He told dispatchers that he tried screaming several times but the victim did not respond.
MCSO was first on the scene and determined the body was that of a mannequin.
Dispatchers were able to cancel fire and EMS responding to the scene.
