SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (AP) -- The bodies of two more Hispanic women have been found in southern Arizona, bringing the total to three since Saturday.

Two bicyclists traveling south on Highway 80 near St. David Monday spotted human remains in some brush.

Cochise County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Carol Capas said an initial investigation indicates the woman's body was dragged from near the road to the brush. She was shoeless and had no identification.

The body was released to the Cochise County Medical Examiner's Office in Sierra Vista.

Two hours later, Sierra Vista police officers responded to a call about a woman's body found in an alley. Police said the body didn't have ID and was released to the county medical examiner.

Saturday, a hiker found a woman's body on Fort Huachuca. Base officials think the woman was an illegal immigrant.
