The headline and subline might be the 2 phrases I least expected to ever see next to each other.

Missing student found dead in landfill
Police: No foul play suspected


Wednesday, April 26, 2006; Posted: 6:10 p.m. EDT (22:10 GMT)

EWING, New Jersey (AP) -- A body found in a Pennsylvania landfill is a college student who disappeared more than a month ago, and foul play doesn't appear to have been involved, authorities said Wednesday.

John Fiocco Jr., a freshman at The College of New Jersey, was last seen in his dormitory early March 25 after a party.

His body was found Tuesday in the Pennsylvania landfill where the dorm's trash is dumped and was identified through dental records, state police and prosecutors said Wednesday. (Watch how police sifted through 3,450 tons of debris to find the body -- 2:56)

"Our sincere condolences go out to his parents, John and Susan Fiocco, and the entire Fiocco family and to the administration and students of The College of New Jersey," said state police Superintendent Rick Fuentes.

Fuentes said there is no evidence that Fiocco was stabbed or shot. He said the investigation is continuing but Fiocco's death is not classified as a homicide. Investigators contacted 1,000 students and school workers, and interviewed more than 150 of Fiocco's friends and relatives, and don't suspect foul play, he said.

The search for Fiocco started 36 hours after he was last seen, when his roommate reported him missing.

Investigators found blood and blood-soaked material in and around a trash bin behind Fiocco's dorm. After a laboratory confirmed the blood was Fiocco's, investigators started sifting through a 1-acre, 20-foot deep area at the landfill in nearby Tullytown, Pennsylvania.

Authorities have said Fiocco may have slid down a trash chute into the bin, although a camera used to scan the chute found no traces of blood.

The injuries that Fiocco's body had sustained were consistent with being processed by a trash disposal system, authorities said. They would not say whether the injuries had been sustained before or after Fiocco died.

Mercer County Prosecutor Joseph Bocchini Jr. said it is possible authorities will never learn exactly what happened

"Let the bodies hit the floor!"

Oh wait, probably not the right time for that. :-D


Not too surprising to hear about a body in a landfill. I bet there are tons of bodies in landfills around the country. :,-(

I don't see how foul play could not be assumed in this instance. How does someone accidently end up dead in a trash bin? Unless he went down the chute for a sweet ride and got hurt on the way down and got knocked out or killed when he hit the bin. Sounds weird.

Yep, seems like someone either tossed him, or he got up and decided to go for a ride. My question is, who goes for a dive down a trash bin without telling someone you're about to do it? I mean, if you're messed up (And you'd have to be to do that) it's pretty likely that you got messed up with someone. So why not go tell them that you're about to go for a dive? If this guy went for a jump down the chute someone saw him do it.
