A man’s body was found this morning inside one of the U-Haul trailers downtown. He had apparently crawled in to sleep and got trapped inside, because of the automatic lock (which sounds like a horrible idea).

An employee who refused to give his name said he was checking the trailers when he raised the back door and discovered the man about 9:25 a.m. “It scared the heck out of me,” he said.
