TUCSON KGUN9 TV - A woman discovered what appeared to be a body wrapped in cloth after chasing down her run away dog.  

Tom Peine with the Pima County Sheriffs department tells KGUN9 that members with the Sheriff's Auxiliary Volunteers were approached by a woman Friday at approximately 3:14 p.m. while overlooking an airplane crash site. 

The woman believed her dog had located a human body on South Postvale Road, just north of Ajo Highway, after running off while she was taking a walk with her kids.

After assessing the scene, deputies passed the investigation over to Detectives with the Sheriff's Department's Homicide Unit.  

The detectives removed the cloth to find an unidentified adult man. Decomposition of the body showed that it had been there for quite some time.  

Anyone with information about the unidentified man or with any other possible information on this case is urged to call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME.

The investigation is ongoing at this time. KGUN 9 On Your Side will have more on this as new details become available.
