Pima County Sheriff's deputies found a body Sunday morning that appears to have been in the desert for months.
The body was found in the 14,100 Block of West Manville Road, a remote area near the Aqua Blanca Ranch west of Saguaro National Park-West.
Deputies could not identify a manner or cause of death, Pima County Sheriff's Deputy Dawn Barkman said.
Homicide Unit detectives responded to the scene for additional investigation, she said.
The identity and sex of the victim was not known because of the condition of the body, Barkman said.
