SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Scottsdale Police officials announced on May 30 that they have arrested a person in connection with the discovery of a person's body at Papago Park on May 23.
According to various statements released by police officials on May 23, a caller reported seeing the body to officers at 8 a.m. near Galvin Parkway and McDowell Road. The body was reportedly found along a trail in the area.
At the time, police said the person who died was "connected with suspicious circumstances." That person has since been identified as 29-year-old Julian Gianfranco Gonzales.
