Flash flood strands man in wash



A man in his mid-20s will not be cited after being rescued from the CaƱada del Oro wash last night.

“This is not a stupid motorist case,” said Rural/Metro District Chief George Good. “You couldn’t tell there was water in the wash. He basically got hit by a flash flood.”

The man’s Volvo got stuck at about 8:25 p.m. at North La Cholla Boulevard. Up to 2 inches of rain fell on the northern slopes of the Santa Catalinas last night. The water drains into the CDO.

Body at Huachuca may be migrant



The Cochise County Medical Examiner’s Office is looking into the discovery of a dead man yesterday morning near a baseball field on Fort Huachuca.

The man, believed to be an illegal immigrant, was found by military police near Smiley Field about 8 a.m., said U.S. Army spokeswoman Tanja Linton in a news release.

The body was turned over to the medical examiner’s office for identification. The death is being investigated by Army and civilian authorities, the release states.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
