In police work, a dump job is a type of murder in which the victim's body is transported to another location and abandoned, usually in a deserted area.[1]

The intent of a dump job is to hide someone's association with the murder. This may be direct responsibility for the killing or involvement in surrounding circumstances.

Such cases often entail forensic difficulties.
