TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A recycling center worker found a man's body stuffed inside a downtown Tulsa recycling bin, police said Tuesday.

Tulsa Police Sgt. Kim Presley said a female worker from Midland Recycling found the man's body after taking three of four downtown Tulsa recycling bins to the recycling center in nearby Sand Springs.

Presley said officers are treating the death as a homicide because they don't know how the 44-year-old man died. Police have identified the man but won't release his name pending notification of kin.
