TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Another dead body has been found off Interstate 10 in Tucson.

Construction workers discovered the body of a young man Wednesday morning.

The discovery comes a day after a state prison work crew discovered skeletal remains belonging to a man buried in a shallow grave near I-10 and Craycroft Road.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say workers who were surveying an area near East Drexel Road found the body about 7:45 a.m. Wednesday.

No other information is immediately available.

On Tuesday afternoon, an inmate work crew discovered a shallow grave under a tree off I-10.

KVOA-TV reports a forensic pathologist with the county medical examiner's office responded to the scene and says the remains belong to an adult.

The cause of death still isn't known.
