WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A man's body was found after a WASTEC container truck was emptied early Thursday morning.
42-year-old Berry O'Neal Carter was discovered by WASTEC facility officials when they emptied a container on North US HWY 421.
Detectives say they do not suspect foul play and believe Carter was homeless, seeking shelter in the dumpster.
Preliminary autopsy results confirm Carter suffered substantial internal trauma from being crushed by the truck's compactor.
