CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire authorities say an autopsy shows that a man found dead in a trash transfer station died of “probable traumatic asphyxia,” and investigators say it’s possible his death was accidental.

Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said Wednesday the body of 36-year-old William Bradley was found Monday at the Waste Management Transfer Station in Auburn, in a pile of refuse delivered to the station.

MacDonald said the manner of Bradley’s death is pending. The investigation is ongoing, including the possibility that his death was accidental.

MacDonald said Bradley’s last known whereabouts is believed to be Manchester or Nashua.
