TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — An autopsy says a Topeka man died accidentally in March when the dumpster he was in was dumped into a recycling truck. An autopsy made public this week says 62-year-old Paul Vigil died from multiple injuries in a cardboard recycler.

Vigil’s body was found March 9 by landfill employees among recycling materials. The autopsy by county coroner John Ralston said Vigil suffered gaping cuts to his left back and left upper chest and fractures to his skull, bones, and multiple ribs. Foul play is not suspected.

He died on a day when Topeka received almost an inch of precipitation and had a morning low of 36 degrees.
