See Update No. 3 on Page 2 identifying the victim as Jarrae Nykkole Estepp, 21. Update Nos. 1-2 on the next page revealed the body was a woman's and the case is being investigated as a homicide.

ORIGINAL POST, MARCH 14, 12:16 P.M.: A body was found in the trash at an Anaheim waste and recycling center, according to authorities.

Republic Services is at 1131 N. Blue Gum St., Anaheim, which is near the intersection of the 91 and 57 freeways.

Someone was reportedly looking through trash for things that could possibly be recycled when the body was discovered.

Law enforcement teams are at the scene now.

UPDATE NO. 1, MARCH 14, 12:55 P.M.: The body found at the warehouse-like facility around 10:30 this morning is that of a woman, according to police.

It was delivered to the Anaheim disposal and recycling facility in a trash bin, Anaheim Police Lt. Tim Schmidt told City News Service, adding the body was intact.

UPDATE NO. 2, MARCH 14, 3:30 P.M.: The discovery of the woman's body at Republic Services, which collects trash and recyclables from northern Orange and southern Los Angeles counties, is being investigated as a homicide, according to Anaheim Police.

A worker found the body on a conveyor belt used to separate recyclables from trash and yard waste, police added, noting the deceased woman was found unclothed and "intact."

Initial reports indicating the body was headless may have been due to the woman having been found face down with the top half of her body covered in trash.

Investigators are attempting to identify the woman, who appeared to have been killed recently, through fingerprints or her tattoos, according to Lt. Tim Schmidt, the Anaheim Police spokesman, who added she appeared to have been 20 to 40 years old.

@MattCoker  I saw that Lisa Ling posted something on Facebook how this victim had been in a series of web videos.  It links to an LA Times article but I don't have an LA Times account.

Was always afraid of this when I worked as a garbage worker, when I was younger. Back when Puente Hills Landfill was open, you could go straight to the landfill and drop your trash/waste and it would go directly into being buried. Always thought how easy it could be to just hide something you didn't want found. Now most of the trash gets handled at a recycling plant.

On Anaheim PD official facebook, they had an Missing Persons Bulletin and it was Ms. Estepps , they were looking for. This was yesterday, so I responded with a link of OCR and CBS reporting that the person found dead was identified as her, and my comment was " removed or deleted " wtf is really going on...

The cases could all be connected.  Maybe even the young woman who was found dead at the beach in Newport a year or two ago.  She also had a history of prostitution arrests.  It's hard to say if they are connected to one person or if there is just a few scary people out there roaming the streets.

Regardless of her past, she didn't deserve to die and be discarded like garbage!

I don't appreciate the media touting her "checkered past". Who cares? She was a human being that was literally discarded as trash. So young and so sad.

Serial killer. I hope the police take this seriously. He could be another Grim Sleeper like in LA.

Nykkole?  At least she'll never have to spell that out for someone again.  Whoring is nasty work.  That's why it's illegal.

RIP Jarrae. I hope they find the scum who murdered you and then discarded you as if you were a piece of trash.

She probably just got thrown in the wrong colored can. Shoulda been the black one.

wouldn't a body be more unnoticeable in a compost heap than a recycling center?

Well, you can't say they didn't take it to the right place... And, yes, I deserve something being thrown @ me for that comment, but I couldn't help it!

this is horrible news. why have so many horrible stories been brought to the surface today?

Poor lady. I find this terribly spooky because I was watching an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents last night and the story was about a murderer who disposed of his victim's body by throwing it in his grain thresher...

I can't even imagine dismembering a body.  Killing someone is one thing, but then to have to chop off their head is another.  I guess they are trying to conceal the dental records but then why leave the fingers?  Gross!

Then why are cases like these pretty much non-existent where it's been non-criminalized? It's a nasty busuness because it's illegal and hence attracts the lowest kinds of trafficers into the business, ala the drug trade. I don't partake of either but I resent the system that provides the underworld with such large revenue sources.

@downtownbrown  She is still more pure than all those who go to church or a mosque Fridays and Sundays..

@mikeknowles

And someone who views another human being as "trash" because they have sex for money is a boon to the human race how?
