PHOENIX — Police say there is no connection between two bodies found less than a mile from each other on Sunday at Papago Park in Phoenix.
Sgt. Mercedes Fortune said Monday that the body of a man found in a pond at the south end of the park is being reported as a drowning, and no foul play is suspected.
Officers were called around 8 a.m. for an unknown issue at the popular hiking park.
When police arrived, they met up with the caller who directed them to a body on one of the trails.
Fortune says that body showed signs of blunt force trauma.
The victim's identity has not yet been released.
