PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Phoenix police are investigating the death of a person whose body was found in a Dumpster near North 25 Street and Grandview Road.

Residents of the Desert Villa apartment complex made the gruesome discovery at about 8 a.m. Sunday.

"We woke up and somebody saw too many flies at the garbage can - so they started wondering what it was," said resident Joaquin Moreno.

Police said they don't know if the body is that of a man or a woman - or how that person died.

"It's scary to think about," said Moreno. "You can't be fooling around with nobody - cause you'll end up in a trash can."

Police tell CBS5 News they don't know how long the body had been in the Dumpster and they don't yet have a suspect.
