TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Authorities have identified the body found at a Leon County waste facility Wednesday.

According to Leon County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Melinda McBride, the deceased person has been identified as 43-year-old Anthony D. Todd.

Todd's body was found in a Leon County garbage transfer station Wednesday morning by an employee.

LCSO says that Todd's body had been in a dumpster and transported to the facility by a garbage truck. Investigators are unsure of the exact location of dumpster where Todd's body was picked up from, but say it is in Leon County.

An autopsy conducted Thursday morning revealed no signs of foul play, but it will be several weeks until toxicology and lab results are finalized, authorities say.

No further details are available at this time.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The Leon County Sheriff's Office says a body was found at a county waste facility Wednesday morning.

LCSO Sgt. Melinda McBride told WCTV that an employee found the body at the Leon County Transfer Station located in the 4900 block of Gum Road around 10:30 a.m.

Gum Road runs between Capital Circle SW and Aenon Church Road.

Mcbride said the body was found in the area where garbage is inspected, but investigators aren't able to tell if the body was brought in with trash or left at the site.

Deputies spent several hours on scene Wednesday and LCSO says the investigation is ongoing.

The Leon County website says that the transfer station collects household waste, which is inspected before being transported to a regional landfill.
