LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Police in Little Rock are looking for suspects in two weekend homicides they believe are unrelated.

Authorities say the body of 21-year-old Tanisha Roby was discovered in a vacant lot about 9:40 a.m. Saturday. She was reported missing by her sister around 2 a.m. when she did not return home from work, where she was last seen alive about 9:30 p.m. Friday.

Roby’s body was taken to the medical examiner’s office to determine the cause of her death.

Detectives are also investigating Saturday’s death of 19-year-old Kendrick Scales, who was shot and dropped off at a local hospital, where he later died.

An unidentified car dropped off the victim about 3:30 a.m. A witness told police that he had seen the man on the ground.
