TUCSON, Arizona (AP) – Park authorities say a woman was found dead in Saguaro National Park, Tucson. The body was found on Wednesday near the Grass Shack campsite on the south side of the Rincon Mountains. According to authorities, the woman had obvious signs of trauma. Authorities did not say Thursday whether the woman has still been identified. Based on the investigation, park officials say the campsite will be closed at least until Sunday. The park is named after the large saguaro cactus that is native to its desert setting. The Saguaro National Monument was created in 1933, expanded in 1961 and declared a national park in 1994.
