The body of a 20-year-old man was found lying in the middle of a dirt road near Tucson International Airport Thursday morning.

Police are not releasing the name of the man pending notification of his relatives, said Sgt. Chris Widmer, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department.

Police received a 911 call at about 7:30 a.m. from a passer-by who reported a man lying in the middle of East Old Vail Connection just east of South Country Club Road, near the airport.

First responders pronounced the man dead at the scene.

The victim suffered trauma, Widmer said.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
