    I don't think this has anything to do with escaping the weather. We have open air containers next to my building for renovations, you would be surprised at how many people get in them looking for whatever they can salvage. But looking to get out of harsh weather conditions I don't think so. She probably wanted free clothing. Still, it's sad.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    I think this was a "Dumpster Diving" for clothes, misadventure. Sad, nonetheless.

    I suppose that she died from exposure or cold?
    How the heck else do you die in a clothing bin?

    It's not like she crawled into a wood chipper looking for some firewood.

    Something like this happened near me. A lady was trying to loot a donation bin, fell off of her step ladder, and got her arm stuck (and broken). She was dangling there for hours. Died of trauma and exposure... all for some free clothes. She drove a Hummer, so she wasn't needy.
