Decomposed body found in trailer, investigation continues

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Detectives continue to investigate the cause of a homicide in the 300 block of E. Pastime Road.

Operations Division West officers responded to a report of a deceased body at a trailer around 8:30 a.m. on June 23 and found a decomposing body, police say.

Homicide detectives processed evidence and determined the body had been there for at least one week, and also showed signs of trauma.

They spoke to neighbors, who said they noticed a smell from the trailer. Police say one neighbor entered the trailer, found the deceased man and called 911.

The victim is described as a Hispanic adult, but detectives were unable to identify him.

Anyone with information on the ongoing investigation is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
