PHOENIX -- The mother of a Phoenix-based flight attendant found dead in a Mexico City hotel room says an arrest has been made relating to his case.

Nick Aaronson was on a layover when his naked body was found by Hilton Hotel staff shortly after 6 a.m. Saturday. His hands reportedly were bound behind his back with a cloth.

The office of the Mexico City prosecutor says several marks indicate the 33-year-old man had been beaten and choked.

On his mother's Facebook page, Anita Aaronson says the FBI told her other son that someone was arrested, but investigators will not say who it is.
