TPD investigates apparent homicide on south side

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police are investigating the discovery of a body with obvious signs of trauma south of Tucson International Airport.

A motorist found the body of the Hispanic or Native American man on East Old Vail Connection Road near South Country Club Road. 

There was a shirt pulled over the body's head, police say.

Police say the condition of the body suggests that it was only there for a few hours.

Tucson Police Department spokesman Sgt. Chris Widmer said that because of the remote location, it isn't likely that there are any witnesses. However, police urge anyone with information about this case to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
