A man was found dead in a donation bin Sunday outside a Walmart in Tennessee after apparently getting stuck, police said.

Responding officers found the 48-year-old man, whose identity has not been disclosed, with the lower part of his body protruding from the bin. He was extricated and pronounced dead at the scene.

No foul play is suspected, police said.

"He was not homeless," Clarksville police spokesman Jim Knoll said, adding that any thoughts as to why he may have been in the bin "would be conjecture."
