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.
Check back throughout the day for updates.
