PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - A man's dead body has been found in an irrigation canal in an outlying area of northwestern metro Phoenix.
Peoria police spokeswoman Amanda Jacinto says circumstances of the man's death are not immediately known, including whether it is related to flooding Tuesday.
Jacinto says Peoria and Glendale police and the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office are at the scene and trying to determine which agency has jurisdiction.
She says bicyclists riding along the Arizona Canal spotted the man's body in the water Wednesday morning near 75th Avenue and Greenway Road.
