TUCSON, Ariz. -- Police are asking for help locating a Tucson woman who's been missing since a fire at her apartment on October 5.

Jessica Nuanez, 27, wasn't home when firefighters went to her residence on South Park Avenue.

There's no indication she was hurt in the fire, but her vehicle also has not been seen for a week, so her family went to police for help.

Nuanez drove a champagne colored Hummer H2 with a temporary license plate.

Anyone who knows where she is should call 911 or 88-CRIME.


TUCSON, Ariz. -- Police need help finding two people wanted for questioning on a possible murder that happened last month at the Valencia gardens apartments.

A man was found dead there on September 22, and police think he was killed based on his wounds.

They're looking for a woman between 20 and 30 years old with long dark hair, and a man in his late thirties or early forties with dark hair and a mustache.

If you know who or where either of these people are, call police immediately.


TUCSON, Ariz. -- Plastic grocery sacks of human bones were left outside Evergreen Cemetery Wednesday.

The plastic bags read: Good Neighbor Pharmacy and Thank You.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
