VAIL, Colo. (CBS4) – A good samaritan rescued a woman tied up in a dumpster in Vail.
Police are now looking for the person responsible for leaving her there Tuesday morning.
A neighbor was walking by the dumpster when they heard noises and looked inside to find the woman.
The 31-year-old woman was breathing, but very cold and had other injuries.
Police say this was no accident.
“There was a tie found on her. We’ve been able to confirm that she was able to free herself from some of them by using a lighter. There were still some around her wrist and ankle,” said Luke Causey, a spokesman with Vail police.
Investigators say they don’t believe there is a danger to the community.
They hope to be able to release more information about a suspect soon.
Anyone with information about suspicious activity in either area is encouraged to call Vail Police and speak with Detective Sgt. Luke Causey, 970-470-2372 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
