Authorities are trying to identify the body of a woman found in a desert area just south of the Foothills Mall in Tucson.

Deputies say the body had been at that location "for an extended period of time."

Homicide detectives are investigating what is being called a suspicious death.

Sheriff's officials say the county Medical Examiner's Office will determine the cause of death.
