Ashley Moorhead, 26, was found strangled and dumped in one of these
Last Friday morning, about two blocks from the fashionable Cherokee Street arts district, a homeowner in Gravois Park looked out to the alleyway behind his house. 

He thought he spied a man stealing his green city-provided trash can. 



The homeowner confronted the man, who bolted. But then the homeowner looked inside the can and found a dead body. 

Police have confirmed it was Ashley Moorhead, age 26, formerly of the 3200 block of Texas Avenue (i.e., just a block north of the Cherokee neighborhood). 

She had been strangled. The investigation is ongoing, police say. 

Here's where it happened:

Wouldn't it be easier just to put out wood chippers in the alley?
