Tucson police are investigating a body found in the middle of a dirt road this morning.

The body of a man “showed obvious signs of trauma,” said Sgt. Chris Widmer, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department.

Police received a 911 call at about 7:30 a.m. from a passerby who reported a man lying in the middle of East Old Vail Connection just east of South Country Club Road, near the Tucson International Airport. First responders pronounced the man dead at the scene, Widmer said.

The 20-year-old man's name has not been released pending notification of his relatives.
