HAMMOND - A man sleeping in a dumpster was crushed Tuesday morning when trash was dumped into a garbage truck and compacted.

Hammond Police officers believe 42-year-old Jermaine Watts climbed into the dumpster Monday night to escape the cold and was unaware the trash would be picked up the following morning.

Officers said there are no signs of foul play and more information will be released when a final autopsy is performed.
