Greensboro, NC -- Greensboro police have identified a body found in a dumpster Saturday morning in East Greensboro.

Detectives identifed the person as 56 year-old Jerry Ronald Lell of Greensboro.  

Investigators said Lell's body was found at 10:46 a.m. inside a dumpster behind a building on East Market at the N. English Street intersection.

Officers said some men looking for boxes saw the body inside the dumpster and called police.

The body was partially burned from a fire in the bin, and investigators are trying to figure out if the blaze was an attempt to destroy evidence.

Lell's body has been taken to the medical examiner's office for an autopsy.
