APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. (AP) -- A body found underneath a mobile home in Apache Junction believed to be that of a missing woman still hasn't been identified.

But Apache Junction police say a person of interest in the case has been arrested on unrelated charges.

The name of that person wasn't immediately released Monday evening.

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

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.

A woman living in the home was reported missing on Sept. 4, but authorities haven't released her name.

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