FLAGSTAFF, AZ - A dead body found in northern Arizona has been identified as a Washington state man with a federal warrant out for his arrest.
Coconino County Sheriff's officials say the body of 47-year-old Stephen Buck was discovered May 27 by a hiker in Oak Creek Canyon.
The fully-clothed body was found behind some trees near a creek and authorities say there were no signs of injuries or trauma associated with foul play.
But they say several types of controlled substances or narcotics were found near the body.
No cause of death had been determined, but detectives say a drug overdose is a possibility.
Sheriff's officials say a key found in Buck's clothing was matched to a stolen U-Haul van and there was active federal warrant for his arrest out of California.
