Police Seek Clues About Man Found Dead at South Bay Landfill

SAN JOSE (BCN) — San Jose police are looking for clues in the death of a 49-year-old male transient whose body was found earlier this month at the Newby Landfill in north San Jose, police said today.

The remains of Donald Mills were located on Oct. 21 at the landfill at 1601 Dixon Landing Road, where he may have been transported in a dump truck that picked his corpse up from a garbage container possibly elsewhere in San Jose, according to police Sgt. Heather Randol.

Mills was a transient known to frequent homeless shelters in downtown San Jose and near San Carlos Street and Meridian Avenue in the midtown area, Randol said.

He was released from jail on Oct. 18, three days before his body was found, she said.

Police are asking anyone with information about Mills or his whereabouts before Oct. 21 to call the homicide unit at (408) 277-5283. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call the Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers tip line at (408) 947-7867.
