Decomposed body parts found in Tonopah ID'd

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

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.

    It may be bad news for a bear spotted several times in an area in Rio Rico the last few weeks, state wildlife workers may have to put it down.  However, they may not have to kill it, IF neighbors change their ways.
