Pima County authorities say the body of a man has been found in the desert and the case is being investigated as a homicide.

They say San Xavier District deputies responded to a man down in the desert near San Joaquin Road and Snyder Hill Road. That's on the far southwest side of Tucson.

When deputies arrived, they located a deceased man with obvious signs of trauma.

The department's homicide unit responded and has taken over the investigation.
