Denver halts trash pickup to find body

DENVER, Sept. 24 (UPI) -- Denver has suspended trash pickups of larger garbage bins while volunteers continue searching for the body of a 3-year-old girl.

Around 200 volunteers spent Saturday and Sunday scouring the city for the girl, but after they had no luck the city took the unprecedented move of suspending trash pickup Monday, the Denver Post reported.

"We're going to request the delay of trash pickup Monday of the larger receptacles," said police spokesman Sonny Jackson. "We're asking all businesses to look in their trash Monday for anything that might be different."

Police said they are confident that Niveah Gallegos was killed Friday, allegedly by her mother’s boyfriend, Angel Ray Montoya, 22, who they also believe chucked the body into a garbage can before he was arrested Friday night.

The mother, Miriam Gallegos, 20, was also arrested on suspicion of accessory to murder.
