A man from Tacoma is under arrest after having approached a neighbor at his apartment complex at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, and asking them if he could dump a dead body in their trash.

Tacoma Police spokesman Sgt. Mark Fulghum said it was unclear if the neighbors actually gave the man permission to dump the body in their trash, but he allegedly did it anyway.

The body belonged to a 16-year-old boy who had been shot in the head. What a waste. [KING5, photo via Shutterstock]
