APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. (AP) -- Police are investigating whether a body found underneath a mobile home in Apache Junction is that of a missing woman.

Authorities say residents called police Saturday to report a foul odor coming from the mobile home near Ironwood Drive and Apache Trail.

Apache Junction police say the body was too far decomposed to identify as being a man or a woman.

They are treating it as a suspicious death.

Capt. Arnold Freeman says a woman living in the home was reported missing Sept. 4. But authorities have not yet released her name.

The Pinal County Medical Examiner will determine the identity of the body and cause of death.
