Tucson police Monday are continuing an investigation into the slaying of a man whose body was found in the desert on the South Side.
The man was identified as Rafael Trinidad Gamez-Sanchez, 48, said Sgt. Mark Robinson, a police spokesman.
Police are asking for the public’s help finding Gamez-Sanchez’ pickup truck, Robinson said.
The vehicle is a gray, 2001 GMC extended cab truck with a temporary, paper Arizona license tag with the number 213-121S, Robinson said.
Anyone seeing the truck or knowing anything about Gamez-Sanchez’ killing or his whereabouts from about 2 p.m. Friday to 9:40 a.m. Saturday is asked to call 911 or the anonymous tipster line 88-CRIME.
Gamez-Sanchez left work about 2 p.m. Friday in his pickup. His body was found about 9:40 a.m. Saturday in the 10000 block of South Country Club Road, Robinson said. He would not say where Gamez-Sanchez worked or what kind of work he did.
Gamez-Sanchez suffered trauma, but Robinson said detectives would not disclose what sort of injury may have caused his death.
