(KMOV) -- Police have identified the female body found in a south St. Louis alley dumpster.

27-year-old Ashley Jefferson has been identified as the victim found dead in a dumpster Friday morning on the 3200 block of Miami.

Authorities said a resident was coming out to put trash in the dumpster when they discovered Jefferson’s body.
 
Police believe she is in her 30's. They say she was fully clothed. They found drug paraphernalia across the alley from where Jefferson was found but aren't sure if she's connected to it.
 
Police say there is a garage right there that is known to be popular for drug activity.
 
A purse was found at Tennessee and Miami, but they aren't sure that it's the victim.
 
Investigators are still awaiting autopsy results on the cause of death.
