SUN CITY, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities say two unidentified bodies have been found in the backyard of a home in Sun City.

Maricopa County Sheriff's officials say the dead bodies were discovered late Thursday morning at a house near 99th Avenue and Beardsley.

Sheriff's officials say the cause of death is under investigation.

They didn't immediately release information on the gender of the bodies and it was unclear if the two lived at the home.

Neighbors had complained of a smell coming from the area and called 911.

One neighbor told The Arizona Republic she looked in the backyard and saw two bodies lying next to each other.

The woman says each body appeared to be fully dressed with a blanket partially covering them.
