TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — An investigation is underway after a decomposing body was discovered near the top of Tumamoc Hill on July 21 at 7:10pm.

The University of Arizona Police Department says the body wasn’t found immediately near the common hiking trail, but it was on University of Arizona property.

On Tuesday, July 27, UAPD identified the person as 31-year-old Bryan Curtis Long.

“The body was found in an advanced stage of decomposition," said UAPD Officer Jesus Aguilar.

Following an autopsy, the death has been documented as "undetermined" and there are no signs of foul play or trauma.

“Right now there is nothing to indicate any ongoing threat to the concerns. This does look like an isolated incident and we just ask the public for patience so our detectives can continue the investigation,” Aguilar said.

The investigation remains ongoing. UAPD is asking anyone with information to come forward.
