The body of a woman discarded in a dumpster has Manteca Police wanting to know her identity.

The woman's body was found Saturday night in a dumpster in an alley on South Main Street, behind the former Social Security office and the Big 5 Sporting Goods store.  

Manteca Police say the woman was placed in the dumpster some time around 10:30 p.m.  

The Manteca Bulletin says dumpster divers looking for cans to recycle came upon her body and called 911.  

Police describe the woman as 18-25 years of age, 130 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.  

An autopsy will be performed on the body at the San Joaquin County coroner's office, but early reports say it appeared the woman is a victim of a particularly violent act of homicide.
