Phoenix police report that a homicide investigation has begun after a body was found on Thanksgiving Day with obvious "trauma."
The body was found "in the area of 4015 East Madison" in Phoenix, writes Phoenix Officer James Holmes in an e-mail when asked about recent death investigations. "We have not identified this victim and there are no suspect(s) or witnesses."
That's the address of a local boat shop near 40th Street and Washington, near a large, empty lot.
Holmes is saying no more, for now. We'll let you know when more info is released.
