A man killed at a south side park was identified as Michael Bettendorf, police said.

Bettendorf, 50, was found Saturday at El Pueblo Park at 101 W. Irvington Road, said police.

A passerby found the body with “obvious signs of trauma”, said Sgt. Chris Widmer, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

Police were called at about 7:45 a.m. after Bettendorf was found dead in a grassy area of the park, Widmer said.

Detectives spent much of the day canvassing the area for evidence and speaking with neighbors.

Homicide detectives ask that anyone with information call 911 or 88-CRIME.
