YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities still are searching for a suspect in a homicide case in Yuma.
Yuma police say the body of 24-year-old Jessica Monique Sanchez was found May 13 in an orange grove.
As part of the investigation, detectives wanted to speak with a 27-year-old woman.
But police said Friday that they have talked with that woman.
Yuma detectives have been piecing together a timeline of Sanchez's activities during the days leading up to her death. The last known time Sanchez had contact with another person was May 9.
Police have not released a cause of death.
