Police say a dead body was found in the yard of a Phoenix home on Sunday night. 

Officers were called to the home in reference to a possible dead body on the property near 39th and Southern avenues. When they arrived, they found the body of an adult female. 

A neighbor says a 60-year-old man lives in the house where the body was found and that his adult son moved in about a month ago.

He said there has never been a problem there until the son arrived and thinks the incident may have had something to do with the son.

Police say a medical examiner will determine the cause of death. 

The identity of the body has not been released. 

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Phoenix Police or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
