Authorities say a man found dead at an Asheville recycling plant likely crawled into a trash bin downtown before it was loaded onto a truck.
The Asheville Citizen-Times reports that 50-year-old Calvin Fox
Fox's body was mixed in cardboard and workers separating the material found him on May 24. Trucks from several different counties bring recycling to the plant daily, and investigators said the load containing Fox's body had been delivered to the plant several days earlier.
Authorities ruled Fox's death an accident.
State officials say Fox was released from prison in March after serving nearly two years for felonious assault on a handicapped person.
