FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Coconino County authorities say a man found dead in the Mount Elden area was a homicide victim.

County sheriff’s officials said Monday that 60-year-old Carl Lee Shetler is considered a transient and investigators haven’t been able to locate any of his relatives.

A woman contacted Arizona Department of Public Safety officers last Thursday to report seeing a body at a temporary campsite off the Fatman’s Loop trail.

DPS officers followed the witness back to the site, where they found the body.

It was then taken to the county Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.

Sheriff’s detectives say they believe foul play was involved and the case is considered a homicide.

They say no additional details are being released at this time so as to protect the integrity of the investigation.
