BUCKEYE, Ariz. — Authorities say a dead body has been found along a road in Buckeye and it appears to be a homicide case.
Maricopa County Sheriff’s officials say the body of 51-year-old Mark Meginley was found Wednesday afternoon.
They say a sleeping bag was draped over Meginley’s body, who carried no identification.
“He was kind of laying on some bushes and just kind of in a weird position,” said MCSO Lt. Brandon Jones.
Sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Brandon Jones says investigators are confident that the death is not a suicide and it looks like foul play is involved.
Authorities are checking on reports that some people in the area say they saw Meginley’s body being thrown from a car.
