CHANDLER, Ariz. -
Chandler police are investigating the death of man whose body was found near Balboa Way and Kaibab Drive. This is a gated community west of Alma School and south of Chandler Heights.
Authorities say shortly after 6 a.m. Monday, a woman walking her dog came across the body laying in some bushes near the area green belt.
"The original call that came in.. the man had stumbled into a garage.. the sound of him running into that closed door woke up the homeowner. They looked out their window and that's where they saw this man stumbling around the neighborhood and called police," said Sgt. Joseph Favazzo.
Officers searched the area and did not locate the man. Favazzo says they believe this may be the same person who was seen stumbling around.
Investigators say the victim is a white male, age 18. His name is not yet being released.
The medical examiner will determine a cause of death.
