Bath Township Police identify the body discovered Sunday in a dumpster as that of 25-year-old Michelle Hartman. Her half clothed body was found in a Clark Engineering Co. dumpster around 3 p.m. An employee saw one of her legs as he was dumping trash.

Police are calling her death suspicious although Chief of Police Jack Phillips says investigators are narrowing the scope and should know more by Monday evening. Phillips says they have a definite direction they're heading in.

Autopsy results will determine the cause of death.
