Dead body found in a manhole on Tucson's east side

TUCSON, AZ - Authorities in Tucson say a dead body has been found in a manhole on the city's east side.

The body was discovered Monday by crews from Tucson Electric Power who opened the manhole as part of a work project.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say it's unclear how long the body has been in the manhole.

They say the last time that particular manhole was opened was in 2009.

There's no immediate word on the body's gender or identity or how the person died.
