PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — Providence Police say the cause of death for a body found in a trash bin has been ruled a homicide.

Maj. David Lapatin tells WPRI-TV (http://bit.ly/1qnxz8K ) that the adult man found in the bin on Sept. 7 had been dead since May or June.

He says they are not yet releasing the man's identity, but expect to do so soon.

The plastic city-issued trash bin was found sitting in woods by a passer-by, who noticed a foul odor.
