MESCAL, Ariz. (AP) - The Cochise County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the discovery of man’s body on railroad tracks near the town of Mescal.

Sheriff’s officials say the body was found Monday morning.

Deputies checked for any identification or personal items in the man’s clothing and found only a voucher card from a California casino that had a name and account number on it.

They say the casino provided a name, date of birth and identification number from a Mexico ID card associated with that account and confirmed the last known usage was on Saturday.

The body has been taken to the Pima County Medical Examiners’ Office for an autopsy to determine the manner of death and a possible identity confirmation.

The Mexican Consulate also will be assisting the identification of the man.
