Tyler police: No evident signs of foul play after woman found dead in dumpster

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Tyler police say investigators found no evident signs of trauma on the body of a woman who was found in a dumpster.

Saturday, officers found the body of Linda Tribble, 65, of Tyler in a garbage dumpster at a Family Dollar in the 1500 block of Northwest Loop 323. Police say Tribble was an avid collector of discarded items.

"She has been known to get into containers to search for discarded items on numerous occasions," Tyler Police Department said in a statement.

When investigators removed her body, TPD said they found no evident signs of trauma to her body that would immediately indicate foul play.

Tribble was reported missing about 4 p.m. Saturday by her husband, who told police he found her vehicle in the parking lot of a Family Dollar store but that she was not around.

Investigators are still waiting for autopsy reports to determine her cause of death and the case remains under investigation.
