FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) - Pinal County sheriff's officials say they've made four arrests in connection with the death of an unidentified man whose body was found nearly two years ago in a partially buried tool box near Kearny.
Sheriff's spokesman Tim Gaffney says a hunter found the truck tool box containing the decomposing remains in January 2011.
Gaffney said Friday that detectives discovered the man was lured to a Kearny home by two men who planned to kill him after a dispute over a drug debt. Two other men were then enlisted to dispose of the body in the desert.
Detectives are still working to identify the victim.
