PHOENIX (AP) — Police in Phoenix say the decomposing body of a man has been found at a worksite near the downtown area.

They say construction workers discovered the body around 8:30 a.m. Monday while doing demolition work on an unoccupied house.

Police say the workers uncovered the body, which was in a decomposed state.

Given the placement of the body, police believe foul play was involved in the man's death and the case is being investigated as a homicide.

Police didn't immediately provide any additional information about the case.
