    A body found in a trash barrel off Leander Street in Providence, Rhode Island, in September has now been identified.

    The victim is Augustin Nito Jaiman.

    His wife, Evelyn LaFrance, had reported him missing to authorities in June. Officials said the body was left in the barrel since at least that time.

    A funeral was held for Jaiman on October 4th. He also leaves behind four children.
    LaFrance is hoping for justice.

    "You took a good man away from his family and you really need to pay for what you did," LaFrance said. "If you're out there, turn yourself in."
