TUCSON, Ariz. -- Tucson police are looking for leads in an overnight murder.

Just before 4 Sunday morning, a man on a bike discovered the body of 25-year-old Jesse Morgan in a park near Camino Del Sierra and San Marcos.

Investigators say the body showed obvious signs of trauma.  Officers with the gang unit collected evidence and canvassed the neighborhood, but still don't have much to go on.

"Anything they saw that they might not think its pertinent or they think someone else already called 911and that's not the case, so one small thing can turn into a big lead for the case," said Sgt. Diana Lopez from the Tucson Police Department.

Police are asking witnesses to call 88-CRIME with tips.
