Second Dead Body Found in Phoenix in 24 Hours
For the second time in about 24 hours, a dead body has been found in Phoenix.
The latest is only described as an adult male. He was found near 64th Lane and Rivas Road about 6:30 a.m..
Phoenix police say they've had contact with the man recently. The death, however, is not suspected to be a homicide.
Early yesterday morning, Arizona Department of Transportation workers found another body underneath bushes alongside Interstate 17 as it crosses 19th Avenue.
Police say the body was badly decomposed -- they suspect the man had been dead for three to four days, exposed to weather and constant sun.
Police don't suspect foul play in that death, either. They believe the man is a homeless guy who likely died at his camp.
