FLAGSTAFF - The body of a sex offender on the run was found in the trunk of a car at the Flagstaff airport.

An off-duty police officer smelled a foul odor coming from a car when he made the discovery on May 15.

Inside the trunk was Trevor Mazak reportedly with a bag over his head. Detectives say he suffocated. They also believe he overdosed on medication, taking his own life.

Mazak had been wanted by Chandler police since last summer. He had failed to register as a sex offender and was accused of threatening to harm his ex-girlfriend.
