Updated: May 20, 2014 12:58PM



A man found dead in a bag in south suburban Harvey last week has been identified.

Tyrone Anderson, 56, was found in a garbage can in an alley in the 100 block of East 155th Street in Harvey on Thursday, according to Harvey spokesman Sean Howard.

Anderson had been reported missing Wednesday, the day before he was found, Howard said. There were no apparent signs of trauma.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said the body was found in a bag, but an autopsy Friday was inconclusive, pending toxicological reports.

Harvey police are conducting a death investigation.
