The Sheriff's Department is investigating an apparent homicide in Redington Pass east of Tucson.

A passerby found the body of a woman near Milepost 8 and called 911, said Deputy Jesus Bañuelos, spokesman for the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.

Once deputies began gathering information, “it looked a little suspicious and now they’re are ruling it a homicide,” Bañuelos said.

Detectives were interviewing two persons of interest as of Wednesday night, he said.

No further information was provided.
