Decomposed body parts found in Tonopah ID'd


Maricopa County sheriff's deputies said Friday they have identified several decomposed body parts found earlier this week near a Tonopah canal.

The victim is identified as Karl Bonz, according to MCSO. Deputies said the man's body had been caught in a storm, and the force of the water ripped his body apart.

Deputies on Monday searched a stretch of land near the canal after the body parts were discovered.

A sheriff's office spokesman said two legs and a torso were spread out more than a mile.

The body parts were found near a canal close to 387th and Orangewood avenues.

Bonz was in a single-vehicle accident on April 26, and his body was never found.

No other information was immediately available.
