Police say a man's body found in a vehicle in North Phoenix may have been there for several days.

Detectives are actively investigating what happened to the victim -- right now only described as a man -- who was found at an apartment complex near Bell Road and Tatum Boulevard.

The victim has obvious signs of trauma, but police aren't sure when he was injured or at what scene. They believe he was brought to the current location where he died.

Detectives have not yet identified any suspects or made any arrests.  

The property manager told ABC15 that staff members called police after smelling a bad odor in the area. Police then located the body.
