Foul Play In Death Of Man Found in Trash Can?

Police 21-year-old Joshua Gonzalez-Perez of Union City may have been a crime victim.


(Editor's note: In a version of this story updated at 3 pm on Monday, the family of the deceased wonder if this may have been a prank gone awry, and talk about the young man they called "Pookey Bear.")

A Union City man died Sunday morning after he was found unconscious in a trashcan on the 33900 block of 10th Street, police said.

Police are treating the suspicious death as a serious crime, Cmdr. Ben Horner told KTVU Monday morning.

Joshua Gonzalez-Perez, 21, of Union City, was found at about 6:30 a.m.  Sundaywhen a resident of the home went to take out the trash. When she opened the trashcan, she found Perez inside.

According to a KTVU report, Gonzalez-Perez was a family friend to those at the address and occasionally lived there.

The trash can that Gonzalez-Perez was found in did not belong to the home.

A memorial for Gonzalez-Perez has been put in place at the home where he was found, readers said.
