The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a 20-year-old man who was found dead in his vehicle near Sedona on I-17.
On Saturday around 9 a.m., YCSO discovered a car parked along Interstate 17 near milepost 307. Inside, a deceased male body was found.
The department, along with the Department of Public Safety, is calling the death “suspicious.”
On Nov. 8, YCSO stated “Detectives were able to determine that the young man had been reported missing by his sister out of Phoenix on November 3rd.”
YCSO says no witnesses have come forward. Authorities have not ruled the cause of death yet. Evidence at the scene was inconclusive, although authorities are saying it was evident the death was violent.
An investigation is underway to confirm or rule out foul play. Detectives are waiting final reports from the county medical examiner to determine the cause of death.
The man’s name has not been released.
