Flagstaff, AZ - The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in identifying a deceased body that was located near Woody Mountain Road.

On April 24, 2018 at approximately 5 pm, Deputies received a report of human remains located near Woody Mountain Road. The remains had been found by a sportsman driving in the area.
