Investigators Seek Answers About Dead Body Located In
Central Mesa Canal
February 12, 2008
Shortly before 10:00 a.m. on the morning of February 12, 2008,
the Mesa Police Department responded to a canal located just
west of Greenfield Road between Broadway and Southern after a
witness contacted the police to report a possible dead body
floating in the water.
Officers responded and located the body of an unknown male
floating in the canal. EMS personnel confirmed that the male
was, in fact, deceased. Investigators are in the process of
trying to identify the dead male. Preliminary research of
missing person files in Mesa did not produce any leads. Due to
the progression of decomposition of the body, investigators
cannot give an accurate age range of the victim. However, we can
confirm that the body is that of an adult male. Investigators
are waiting for autopsy results from the Medical Examiner's
office to pinpoint the cause of death.
Anyone who may have information about this case is asked to
contact the Mesa Police Department at 480-644-2211.
